Penland Kids Out of the Box Scholarship Application

Please note: This is the scholarship application. Scholarship for Out of the Box! Kits are available to residents of Avery, Mitchell, and Yancey Counties. Click here if you are NOT requesting a scholarship.

Out of the Box! Kits are designed by Penland Kids' instructors so that you can enjoy a bit of Penland from home. Kits contain a week's worth of activities, similar to a half-day camp, with instructions and all the materials you'll need (with the occasional exception of a common household item such as a cup for water or a paper towel).

Out of the Box! Minis Same as above, but Minis contain approximately two day's worth of activities (similar to two half days at camp). 

We are very mindful of safety in light of Covid-19, so we'll be using gloves and masks when assembling the kits, and will ensure that materials sit untouched for a minimum of 3 days before they're distributed. All materials in the kits are certified non-toxic.

Dates Each kit has a Kit Available date in the listing to indicate the first possible date for pickup.

  • Scholarships are intended for students in Yancey, Mitchell, and Avery counties who would not be able to participate without financial assistance.
