Access and Affordability

We are focused on providing a camper experience to boys of all backgrounds and experiences.  For addition questions, please contact Camp Belknap at 603-569-3475 or email admincb@campbelknap.org.

Financial Support

Belknap’s non-profit mission is to be affordable to any family who wishes to enroll in Camp.  In an effort to maintain our mission and to minimize our rate increases, Camp provides three tuition options.  Each family’s choice is strictly confidential and will not influence a camper’s experience or placement.

Tuition Option A covers a camper’s full share of the cost of operating and maintaining Camp.  This price helps to ensure that Belknap will continue to thrive for future generations.

Tuition Option B does not cover the camper’s full share of the operating costs of Camp.  However, thanks to generous donations, we are able to continue to offer this pricing.

Apply for Financial Aid.  Well over 100 families each summer apply for financial aid.  A separate application may be requested by emailing admincb@campbelknap.org.

 

Camp Belknap’s Policy on Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Campers

Camp Belknap is an overnight camp serving boys.  For over a century, Belknap has invested in the benefits of a single gender environment to serve our mission of creating good leaders and citizens.  As such, we welcome children who identify as boys, and who are emotionally ready for Camp Belknap.

 

Community Partners

Camp Belknap works closely with several Community Partners and organizations including schools and direct service groups.

Our Community Partners are aligned with our mission so a camper coming through one of these partnerships is supported year-round, which further enhances their leadership and character development.  Some of these partnerships are only a few years old, but others are long-standing, like Baltimore Rotary, which has been working with us for over 25 years.

Community Partners help make the Belknap experience even more accessible by helping us reach an even broader spectrum of communities.

Our Community Partners…

  • Identify deserving boys
  • Help support them through the application process
  • Assist them with preparations for a summer under the pines

In turn, Camp Belknap commits to making a summer at camp affordable for these families through scholarships.
