If you can’t afford full tuition, we encourage you to apply for a scholarship. Scholarship recipients are not expected to compensate by working for CCMC (although helping hands are always appreciated). 

CCMC offers scholarships of up to half of the tuition. Please consider how much assistance you’ll need to be able to come to camp.

CCMC is funded by tuition and donations. Each year, our goal is to break even, which can be challenging. So, as much as we’d love to offer scholarships to everyone who asks, we can’t.

Note that scholarships are provided for one week only, and are meant to subsidize those who could not otherwise afford to attend. If you register for both weeks, you are not eligible to receive a scholarship.

How To Apply

First, you must register for camp and pay a $50 deposit. On the registration form, check the box that says “I am applying for a scholarship.” 

Then, download the PDF scholarship application, fill it out, and return it ASAP by doing one of the following:

  • Email the completed form to with “CCMC Scholarship” in the subject line.
  • Print the form and snail mail it to CCMC, P.O. Box 523, Bellingham, WA, 98227-0523.

Your completed scholarship application must be received within 2 weeks of your registration. We’ll notify you of our decision no later than June 30.

If we are unable to grant your scholarship request:

  • Your full deposit will be returned.
  • If you wish to come to camp as a full-paying student, you’ll need to register (whenever you decide to come without a scholarship). We will not reserve a space for you if we can’t offer you a scholarship.

If you have questions, please call Janet Peterson at 360-224-8007.
