Financial Assistance

Some Scholarships are available through your local Scandinavian societies. Contact your local Danish Brotherhood or Sisterhood Lodge for information and deadlines. Some lodges require membership before being eligible for scholarships.

We also have a number of Sponsorships available through private donors.

  • Danish Brotherhood, Lodge #167, camp grants available to members or family members of members
  • Danish Sisterhoods and Brotherhoods around the country could also have scholarships available, check with your local Lodges.

If you would like to be considered please write a 250 word, typed  essay (12 pt font, double spaced) telling us what your Danish heritage means to you, and why participation in Himmelbjerget Danish Camp is important. Please include your name and age in your letter, and whether you would need a full sponsorship or a half sponsorship. (Parents: help with typing is fine, but please allow your children to use their own words.)
