Penland Summer Camp Scholarship Application

Welcome! Thank you for applying to Penland School of Craft summer camps. We have some wonderful offerings this year. All camps will be held in Ridgeway Hall, across the road from the Penland Gallery. 

Please note: This is the scholarship application. Click here if you are NOT requesting a scholarship.

Here are a few important specifics: 

  • This form must be filled out separately for each camper.
  • Applicants are enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Materials fees are included with registration fees.
  • Payment is due at the time of registration.
  • Scholarships are limited to one per child.
  • Please ensure that your child's age will fall within the age range specified by the instructor. We realize that underaged children may be able to participate fully, but have found that they often end up feeling left out. 

To ensure the safety of our students and instructors:

  • If your child has accessibility needs, allergies, food sensitivities, etc. you must indicate this in the Medical Information section below and also speak to the teacher at the beginning of the camp.
  • Children must be toileting independently in order to attend Kids Camp. We do not accompany children into the restroom and we're not equipped to handle accidents. 
  • We will follow the recommendations of local healthcare professionals and the CDC for Covid-19 safety precautions. Masks and social distancing may be required.
Scholarship Request

Our scholarship funds are limited. Scholarships are intended for students who would not be able to attend Penland Summer Camps without financial assistance. Please consider applying for a partial (50% scholarship) if it is financially feasible for your family. Please do not apply for a scholarship if you are also applying as a full-pay camper.



50% of the tuition (minus the $10 application fee paid today) will be charged to my credit card upon my approval, after my child's acceptance to the camp.
Total: $0.00
Future Commitment: $0.00
