Camp scholarship deadline approaching

By Staff | Mar 27, 2015

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is still accepting applications for its 2015 summer youth camp scholarship program but the deadline for applying coming up fast. All applications must be post-marked by Wednesday, April 8.

Each year, the program helps send deserving area youngsters to summer camps that emphasize conservation and the environment.

Funds for the scholarships come from the proceeds of the Society’s annual fall Bird Seed Sale and from donations.

Scholarships are available not only for the Society’s own day camps in Berkeley and Jefferson counties but also for camps at other locations in West Virginia and as far away as Maine.

Any youngster within the Society’s membership area (the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia and Washington County, Maryland) is eligible to apply.

All applications must be post-marked by Wednesday, April 8.

This year, applicants will be able to choose among eight different camps. Full details and scholarship application forms can be found the PVAS website at www.potomacaudubon.org. Or contact Kathryn Henry at 304-876-6681 or dhenry@myexcel.com
