Part of our mission statement at Grotonwood is that everyone deserves the opportunity to come to camp at least once. Money should never be the obstacle preventing a camper from attending. Thanks to our generous alumni and patrons, we are able to provide financial assistance to those who require it in order to attend.

Please download and complete a Campership Request Form available here, and return it to office@grotonwood.org, or mail it to us a minimum of 10 working days prior to your preferred session start date. We will be in contact when your request has been reviewed. If you wish to discuss this in confidence please contact the office.
