Youth Summer Camp & Activity Scholarship
About The Scholarship
The Youth Summer Camp and Activities 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. AHFC is celebrating our 10th anniversary 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. What have you always dreamed of doing? Apply today and let’s see if we can make it happen!

"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!"
