DYS is dedicated to providing opportunities for every family to send their child to Hot Shot Camp. We offer several ways to help you make camp fees less of a burden:
We now offer several payment options. If you are interested in one of these payment plans, simply contact the office and we will set it up for you:
Full and partial scholarships are available to families who qualify. When registering, remember to complete the scholarship form if you would like to be considered for a scholarship, located with the registration forms on Campwise- the software we use to register campers. Proof of income and a copy of the camper's insurance card are required to receive a scholarship. When you register your camper, look for the '2023 Camper Scholarship Application' under the Forms section in Campwise.
There is a scholarship opportunity for all campers designed to help families lift the burden of additional camp fees in 2023. To be eligible for this scholarship, resident campers must submit a 1-page document explaining the following:
All submissions must be received by the scholarship deadline. Scholarships are contingent on participation at camp. If camper does not attend or is absent, parents and/or guardians will be responsible for paying back the scholarship amount awarded. Exceptions can be made with prior authorization from the Camp Director with at least 24 hours’ notice from first day of camp.
DYS offers free transportation to our resident (overnight) sessions at no extra charge! Charter busses will be available to campers during check in dates in Toledo, OH. To take advantage of this opportunity, simply select 'Travel by Bus' in the Transporation section when registering your camper.
We strive to make sure all camper's have what they need to make the camp experience a memorable one. If you are unable to afford camp supplies such as sleeping bag, beach towels, flashlights, etc. Please reach out. The camper's physician must submit a letter to DYS confirming need to be eligible for this program.
