Today’s young people are the future leaders of our organization. By supporting them in their efforts to achieve a college education we are strengthening the communities where they will one day live and work. Each year our two scholarship programs award more than $10,000 to graduating high school seniors.


Three $1,000 scholarships are awarded to past campers for their fall semesters immediately following high school graduation.

The scholarship fund was created in memory of Shannon Leigh Gaffney, a former camper and counselor 
who passed away in 1998 at the age of 21 after losing her battle with leukemia. Shannon exemplified 
the spirit of Camp and that spirit lives on in the many campers whose lives she influenced. 

Scholarships are made possible by donations and fund-raising.
This fund is designated as a 501(c)3 and donations are tax deductible.

Online Application - March 1 Deadline


Four $1,500 scholarships are awarded to one student from each of four regions and are awarded to first-year college students for use at any four-year university, two-year community college or trade school.

Applicants must be members for a minimum of five years and have certificate and lodge dues in good standing on the date of application. High school grades have no bearing on selection of recipients, only the students’ desire to better themselves.

Scholarships are made possible by fund-raising efforts and donations.
