Donate A Scholarship


Donate A Scholarship


MEGA Sports and Arts Camp is a zero-sum event that is budgeted to be self-sustaining. Every dollar in corresponds to every dollar out. That said, we love the ability to offer scholarships to families in need and depend on sponsors to be able to do so.

If you are interested in sponsoring any scholarship for Camp, you can do so on the event registration page. Select "Donate A Scholarship." Scholarship will be offered to families as need is demonstrated. Most families will still be asked to contribute at least 50% of the registration fee towards the cost of camp, tough some children may receive full-sponsorship in the case of extreme need.
