Financial Assistance Options

1.  Church Scholarships

Many churches provide scholarship assistance for their campers.

Churches that offer scholarships usually have a policy regarding eligibility, restrictions and disbursement. Contact your church for policy details.

Some Churches participate in a scholarship code program. If you are eligible, your church will provide you with a scholarship code. The code represents the monetary amount of your scholarship award. You, the parent will need to contact Camp Fowler with your scholarship code. Fowler staff will apply your code to your account. You will receive an email receipt of the code payment transaction.

You can send your code to Camp Fowler by email: campfowler@rca.org or call 518-631-6789.

Not all churches participate in our code program. If your church provides you with a scholarship without a code, Fowler staff will apply the scholarship to your account after your church sends the scholarship payment to our office.

Your account balance is due paid, including scholarship award payments before June 24.

 

2.  Coeymans Scholarship Fund and Fowler Aid

The purpose of the Coeymans Camp Fowler Scholarship Fund is to provide financial assistance to children attending Camp Fowler, who without help would not be able to attend. The Fund strives to help as many children with financial need as possible so they too may experience the benefits of a week at Camp Fowler. You can help fulfill that mission by providing some financial assistance of your own, in whatever amount you can afford for your child.
