Indian Acres and Forest Acres Scholarship Foundation

The Mission Statement

The Indian and Forest Acres Scholarship Foundation raises and provides scholarship funds for the sole purpose of sending children to Indian and Forest Acres Camps who we believe will both enrich and become good citizens of “Our Summer Place,” but who need additional financial resources to attend.

The Foundation is solely run by members of the Indian and Forest Acres family who share the Camps’ ideals of nurturing traditions as well as relationships, setting strong examples for future generations, and contributing to the community.

The Foundation supports the ideals of the Camps’ own mission of being a community where campers develop physical, social and leadership skills through learning to set and achieve goals, experiencing risk in a safe and supportive environment and gaining a sense of personal and community responsibility.
