Our Place Scholarship Program 2015

Thanks to  the generosity of our Fire & Ice scholarship dinner attendees, and of Rob Watson & the Lone Wolf Cafe in Amherst, we are able this year to offer 10 scholarships, which fully cover the $300.00 camp tuition.

If you would like to apply for the Our Place Scholarship, we ask you to send us (via emailed Word document to

—Your contact information

—Your child’s name, age and school

—A statement of interest and of need: that places your request for assistance in the context of these Hampshire County Census figures:

Median Income for 2010:

family of 2     67K
family of 3     83K
family of 4     102K
family of 5     105K

—Please indicate what session you would like to have your child participate in:
Wings: 6/29 (2 available), 7/13 (2 available)

**Wing sessions are designed for campers who want to explore awesome places, & learn and have fun, without being forced to go on hikes that are too long and hard. The general, but not strict, age is from 6 to 10.

Wings do not miss anything—in fact, one thing we know for sure is that the slower & softer we move through forests, fields and rivers, the more they open up to us. Expect 1/2 to 2 miles of hiking a day.

Sharpshins: 6/22, 6/29 (2 available), 7/6, 7/20

**Sharpshin sessions are designed for campers with more advanced field skills, which means they enjoy walking offtrail, can identify poison ivy/stinging nettle, & can stay fueled and hydrated without prompting. The general, but not strict, age is from 10 to 12. Expect at least 1.5 – 4 miles hiking a day.

Applications must be received by Sunday, March 22, 2015. Decisions will be announced on April 5, 2015.
