Summer Ministry Scholarships
We know that our summer staff work hard, serve beyond expectation, and love big and it's not only YFBC that recognizes this great way you choose to spend your summer. The value of camp is seen by your churches and schools. This is why many of them have scholarships and awards to bless you for your weeks of service.
As we hear about these scholarship opportunities we will post them on this page but we also want to encourage you to ask your church if they have camp staff/summer ministry funding to help you with your tuition costs. (And thank your church by reporting back to them about your summer serving at YFBC! They will love to hear your stories, the lessons you learned, and the highlight moments with campers that make a summer at camp simply the best. We can help you with resources for this presentation if you need!)
Many of you have chosen to pursue post-secondary studies at bible colleges across the prairies. We love that! If we know a school offers a scholarship for working at camp we will post it!
