The Minnesota Office of Higher Education has approved funding for the St. Olaf Dance Workshop, Music Academy, OleChess Camp, and Theater Camp as part of their 2020 Summer Academic Enrichment Program. The Summer Academic Enrichment Program will provide stipends on a first-come, first-serve basis, to cover the direct cost for Minnesota students to attend the approved St. Olaf Camps during the summer of 2020.
REMINDER: Registration form, free/reduced lunch verification, most recent report card, and SSN need to be in the camp office before your camper’s application can be submitted to the Summer Academic Enrichment Program for approval.
Some community organizations offer academic summer camp funds to local students. Please check with your local groups: VFW, Lion’s Club, Jaycees, American Legion, to name a few.
