camper scholarship program
Skyview Ranch offers scholarship assistance for campers of all ages! We never want a financial need to keep students from attending Skyview Ranch. If you are in need of financial assistance please explore the following options. We desire to help offset the cost of camp as much as possible.
Ohio ACE Education Account
The Ohio Afterschool Child Enrichment (ACE) Educational Savings Account program provides funds to a student’s parent or guardian to use on various enrichment and educational activities. Because Skyview Ranch offers students educational opportunities, physical activity, and mental/spiritual enrichment, Skyview Ranch is an approved summer camp provider and partner in the Ohio ACE program! Families that qualify can receive up to $500 per child and that money can be used to send your student to Skyview Ranch. If you child goes to school in the state of Ohio, you likely qualify! For more information please follow the following links to check if you qualify and to register.
Local Church Scholarships
Many local churches offer students the opportunity to earn or receive financial assistance to go to summer camp! If you are a member of a local church we would encourage you to speak with your Pastor and see if your church offers camp scholarships or assistance that would help offset the cost of attending summer camp.
Skyview Ranch Scholarship Program
Each year donors and churches give to fund our SVR Scholarship Fund. These funds are limited and are used on a first come basis. Because of the significant number of families applying for SVR Scholarship Funds each year, we ask that those who sincerely need financial assistance apply only after they have applied for the Ohio ACE program and have spoken with their Pastor (if applicable). If you have been unable to secure financial assistance please download the scholarship application below and submit it at least 2 weeks prior to camp.

Camp scholarships are determined based on financial need, hence the most recent IRS 1040 is required unless applicants are otherwise told by Skyview staff. Extreme or extenuating circumstances may also be taken into account, such as sudden medical bills, deaths in the family, and so on. The majority are given out as partial scholarships. However, some applicants receive them in full.
Scholarships are possible for any guest who wishes to attend a Skyview sponsored retreat (Summer Camp, Ladies Retreat, Men's Retreat, Hunter's Retreat, Creation Camp, Winter Blast, Mission SubZero). Scholarships are unavailable for both the Golf Marathon and Rough and Rugged Race as those are scholarship fundraising events.
At any point during the application process, you can call or email the Office to request an update. Once all paperwork has been received, it generally takes up to two weeks for everything to be processed and possible scholarship to be given out.
