Since 2007, SCOPE Midwest has provided over 1,800 camp scholarships to children from underserved communities with the support from individuals, families, business, and foundations. SCOPE is dedicated to giving SCOPE campers the chance to learn new skills, connect with nature, and develop the sense of independence that can only come from being away from home. These children receive these benefits and many more; this is a gift that will have positive effects that will last throughout their lives.
