Dear Parent,

Thank you for inquiring about The Marsh Scholarship Fund. This fund is annually established through the donations of former staff and friends of The Marsh. These individuals all know the valuable impact a week at The Marsh can have on the life of a child. I hope that we are able to assist you in providing this experience for your child(ren).

It is our goal to provide this day camp experience to as many campers as possible, so we request that you cooperate with the following procedures:

  • Prayerfully consider the portion you are able to contribute to the camper fees and indicate this amount on the form below. Due to the large number of families in financial need, we are not generally able to grant full scholarships. The Marsh typically grants 40% of the camper fee. The rest must be met by the parent, your church, or other sources. It is also our policy that scholarships are not granted for multiple weeks with the exception of extenuating family circumstances. If you are applying for scholarship for more than one week, please provide a detailed explanation of this need.
  • If you attend a church regularly, we request that you inquire to see if they are able to contribute a portion of the camper tuition. If you do not attend church regularly, write “not applicable” in the space provided.
  • Tell us your current financial situation by completing the financial questions on the application.
  • Submit the application form to The Marsh. We will notify you as soon as possible about available funds.  Please register as early in this process as you can.  It will allow us to apply the funds directly to your account, and if the funds do not meet your need, we will refund your child's deposit.  If your child becomes unable to attend camp, please notify us immediately, so that available funds may be assigned to another child.

We sincerely hope that we will be able to assist your family this summer. Please pray that funds will be provided. Feel free to call 443-674-9478 or email themarsh@sandycove.org with any questions you may have.

With joy in Him,
Evelyn Ransil
