Camp Scholarships

From Impact 2818

It is our desire that everyone has the opportunity to attend camp. Unfortunately, sometimes finances can provide an obstacle for some campers. For this reason, Impact 2818 offers a scholarship program providing assistance to families.

  • Any participant can apply for a scholarship to cover part or all of the camp fee. Scholarships are based on financial need. Financial verification is required through a copy of your 1040 Tax Form (no schedules or worksheets needed).
  • Please allow up to 3 weeks for processing & response.
  • Scholarship funds traditionally become limited by April; please apply early.
  • Campers will only be awarded one scholarship per season per year.
  • Scholarships must be redeemed during registration.  Late redemption of scholarships may result in a $5 processing fee (to be deducted from any refunds made after scholarships are applied).  This fee goes to cover the merchant card service fees we are charged for each transaction.

How to Apply

Download the Scholarship Form, complete and return to:
Impact 2818 Attn: Camp Scholarships 301 Pennsylvania Parkway, Suite 300 Indianapolis, IN 46280.

A copy of the family’s most recent IRS form 1040 must be submitted along with a completed scholarship application at least 3 weeks prior to the date you wish to register. The tax form for 2016 or 2017 will be accepted until April 15, 2018. After that date, all applications must be accompanied by 2017’s tax form.

The Helping Hand Scholarship
(Up To 33% of Tuition)

Recipients of this scholarship are awarded 33% of the base cost of camp. Qualification is determined based on the family’s adjusted gross income, size of household, and 200% of the federal poverty guidelines.

Other Scholarship Sources

Each year, local churches support campers with camp scholarships from the church. Check with your local church to see if they have a camp scholarship program.

Multiple Scholarship Codes

If you have received a scholarship from Impact 2818 as well as an iCash code from your local church, please contact the camp registrar at (888) 628-2818 to have the two codes combined into one. More than one code cannot be entered registering. Therefore, in order to receive both your local church and Impact scholarships you must contact the camp registrar for a Combo Code.

That Thing Group Scholarships

Campers attending the high school event at Epworth Forest, That Thing, with a church that is purchasing group tickets (either a lodge or off-site tickets) should not redeem their scholarship by registering online. Instead, That Thing campers attending with a group should give their scholarship award letter to their group leader. The group leader will contact the camp registrar to redeem the scholarship on the camper’s behalf.

That Thing Individual Tickets

Campers attending That Thing with an Individual Ticket can register online and redeem their scholarship using the instructions above for Individual camper registrations.
