Youth Summer Camp & Activity Scholarships
Since 2011, Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) has helped over 1,000 young Alaskans attend a summer camp, take part in an activity, or participate in a sport of their choosing through the Youth Summer Camp and Activities Scholarship.
With nearly $300K invested in Alaskan youth and through the generous sponsorship of over 150 vendors, the Youth Summer Camp and Activities Scholarship has helped families across the State of Alaska to participate in enrichment activities with awards of up to $500.00 per youth.

"My brother and I would like to thank you for the scholarship to attend Camp Kushtaka. We absolutely loved going to camp. It was an incredible experience and our camp counselors couldn't have been more fun to be with. We loved all the activities and they were all fun! We can't thank you enough!"
