Our Staff Scholarship Program

Running the Boy Scout summer camp program at Camp Cachalot requires several dozen staff members, who are in most cases college-aged youths and young adults. To keep the program consistently high quality from year to year, it's best if there is low turnover of staff members, with senior staff members hopefully serving several consecutive years. Unfortunately, staff positions at most summer camps, Cachalot included, are far from lucrative. Combine that with "college-aged youths and young adults" trying to afford an education, and it can it difficult to get that low turnover.

To help with that situation, the Camp Cachalot Alumni Association offers an annual scholarship to a deserving member of the summer camp staff who is pursuing postsecondary education. This program has been awarding scholarships since 2005. The scholarship is made possible through the generous donations of our membership and other donors. We currently have enough earmarked money endowed to enable us to present a $500 and a $250 award annually.

Applications are made available each summer to interested members of the staff through the Reservation Director. Staff members who'd like to get a head start on completing their application may download a copy here (108KB PDF document). Completed applications must be turned in to the Camp Director during summer camp, typically by the end of the second-to-last week of Boy Scout summer camp. The award recipient is announced at the conclusion of summer camp, and is announced to our members in the fall issue of The Cachaletter.

As the summer camp program at Camp Cachalot is currently "suspended", we are not currently soliciting additional donations. Should Cachalot once again host a summer program we will once again present awards.
