Camps 2023 Bursary Applications

 

Our bursary applications for 2023 Summer Camps will open at the same time as registration for the camps opens in late February to early March. To receive updates on our camp programs, sign up for our mailing list!

 

Thanks to the generous contributions of our supporters, we are able to offer bursaries to subsidize program fees, allowing our programs to be more accessible to as many youth as possible. We offer bursaries up to 90% and ask that parents/guardians apply for what their current needs are. We understand that these are unprecedented and financially difficult times for many families. As such, if you require financial assistance for your child to attend our programs, please consider applying to our bursary program below. Your information will be treated with complete confidentiality.

 

Frequently Asked Questions


You do not. We reserve spots in all of our camps for bursary applications. After completing your bursary application we will try to get back to you within 5 business days on the status of your application. However, the wait can be longer when there are high volumes of applications. Once your application is approved we will contact you with a special code that will allow you to register and pay the amount indicated by your bursary. If you have already registered when you apply for a bursary we can refund you based on your bursary amount.



We’ll ask you to rank your top 3 camps, and your top 3 week choices. We try to give everyone their top choices. We will also ask you to tell us why you would like a bursary and why your camper would like to come to our camps. We will not ask you to provide any financial information to us. Lastly, we’ll ask you about what size bursary you’d like. We can only offer bursaries that cover up to 90% of the camp cost.



Unfortunately at this time, Geering Up is only able to offer one bursary per child per camp season. We do offer clubs throughout the school year and your child would be eligible for another bursary in that program.



We will send you a special discount code that you can use when you register through our registration system Active. It’s kind of like using an online gift card! If you register before your application is approved, but your application gets approved, we can refund the quantity of your bursary to your credit card.
