There's a reason we've been running summer camps for over 50 years: because they're awesome. They're also foundational to the growth and identity of so many students. Ask them to share about a pivotal moment in their lives and many will point to an experience they had at summer camp. Why? Because camp provides an environment where kids are able to disconnect from the noise and distractions of their daily lives and reconnect with themselves, their friends, and God.
Primary camp is an exciting introduction to summer camp. This will be one of the most energetic weeks of your child's life -- guaranteed fun and belly laughter, spectacular games, activities, and engaging bible studies with a great speaker!

Entering 11th - College (By Application)
We want every student and family to have an opportunity to attend a life-changing event at Tall Timber, regardless of their financial situation. If the cost of a camp or event is a bit out of reach for you, we recommend exploring the following options:
Check with your own church (if you attend). Many churches have scholarship funds, or generous individuals that contribute so that kids can attend camps and youth events. If you receive a scholarship from a church, simply register for the camp of your choice, and on the scholarship part of the registration indicate that your church is contributing. We will contact your church to work out payment.
If you attend a church in the Northwest Coast Presbytery, the Presbytery will offer scholarships for up to 30% of the camp fee. This also extends to friends who were invited to camp by a Northwest Coast Presbytery attendee. If you receive a scholarship from the Presbytery, follow the same instructions as above.
If none of these options works, or it's still not enough help, Tall Timber has a scholarship fund which will provide for anyone else who needs assistance. The process of applying is simple, just register for the camp of your choosing, and within the online registration is a form that asks if you need a scholarship, and then gives space to explain your circumstances (this is the same section of the registration that gives space to share if you are receiving a scholarship from any other source). We will make contact with you to let you know the amount we are able to provide after you have finished and submitted your registration.
