Financial Assistance for Camp

We believe every child should experience camp, regardless of family income. Thanks to the generous support of donors in our annual Y Partners campaign, we are able to offer scholarships to campers who need extra help getting to camp.

Emily Sandall Campership (Closed for 2023)

The Sandall Family generously provides two camperships to Menogyn summer campers in honor of their daughter Emily. Emily Sandall was a trail guide at Menogyn and an amazing humanitarian. She tragically passed away in 2006 at the age of 25. For more information on Emily visit the Emily Sandall Foundation website.

The application for 2023 is closed. Please check back in the fall for details about applying for summer 2024.

Engagé Program

The Engagé Program is a great way for campers to connect with Menogyn outside of their trail session, give back to camp, and earn credit toward their camper fee. Campers will complete service projects at camp and complete daily tasks, while also having plenty of time for swimming, reading, and so much more. Engagè campers also plan an elaborate ”Welcome” for campers returning back from trail!
