NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS for the Owen Kelly Memorial Campership


A little background:

Owen absolutely loved everything about Shankitunk, and even though it was only a few weeks each summer, Shankitunk was part of his life year round. Owen made numerous 'forever friends' and lifelong memories at this magical place. Owen would want everyone to share in the Shankitunk experience; so this campership has been created for deserving children in need who would enjoy Shankitunk as much as he did.

This campership is open to all eligible campers age 8-16 regardless of where they are from.

The campership will pay the complete cost of camp for one camper each week.

In their application essay, applicants should discuss why they want to attend camp Shankitunk and would need financial assistance.

In addition, applicants should submit one short letter of recommendation from a teacher, 4-H leader, clergy, or friend of the family explaining how camp will help this child with high potential to grow as a leader, learn skills, and make friends at camp, when they may not otherwise have the opportunity.
