Youth Summer Camp & Activity Scholarship

About The Scholarship

The Youth Summer Camp and Activity Scholarship makes it possible for young Alaskans to attend a summer camp, take part in an activity, or participate in a sport of their choosing. In 2022 AHFC celebrated 11 years of offering this scholarship, with awards of up to $500.00 per youth.

From swim lessons, to computer camps, to outdoor adventure trips, there are opportunities for all interests and abilities.

“I am very grateful for Alaska Housing giving kids, and my kids, the opportunity to be able to find something to do in the summer – that helped a lot. They came home every day and expressed their gratitude and told me about all the fun things they got to do.”
