Dr. Sid Curran Memorial Nature Camp Scholarship

Named for former GWVAS Treasurer and activist, the late Dr. Sid Curran, the Dr. Sid Curran Memorial Nature Camp Scholarship offers budding naturalists the opportunity to attend one of several summer nature camps in the GWVAS area.

For 2020, the GWVAS will provide full or partial scholarships for Bear Creek Camp Nature Center and Frances Slocum State Park.

Applications are available by contacting 570-403-2006, by emailing, or by clicking on the link below. The application deadline is June 9, 2020. Scholarship recipients will be notified by June 19, 2020. A limited number of scholarships will be awarded to each age level.

Scholarships are contingent upon the host site offering camp during the 2020 summer season. Please check with the camp before applying for a scholarship.

** To guarantee a spot in the camp of your choice, applicants should register & pay for camps prior to notification of receiving a scholarship.

Any scholarship awards will be reimbursed to recipients.

Recipients will be responsible for their own transportation to and from camp.  Scholarship funding is reimbursed to winning recipients, so please sign up for camp as usual to secure your spot.
