 Here are some FAQ's for those seeking more information on this opportunity.

  1. Who may apply for these scholarships at Camp Overlook? We welcome applications from anyone in St. Lawrence County.
  2. Who is eligible for scholarships? Our giving is based on the recipient's dedication and involvement in 4-H. The application requires information about the Life Skills that have been learned and/or improved upon from the child's involvement in 4-H, what has been learned from working with other youth in 4-H, how they have demonstrated leadership in 4-H or in other activities, what community service projects they have been involved in and how 4-H has contributed to “who they are” at the present time.

If you have another party submitting payment to us, we must know the name of the County you are working with, the Case Manager and their contact information. Payments must be received prior to your arrival to camp, unless a different arrangement has been made between us and the 3rd party.
