The Impact of Our Scholarship Fund
Our mission to use the outdoors as a backdrop to inspire curiosity and critical thinking is a pathway to strengthening our community. We believe that every child deserves to experience the magic of learning in our beautiful outdoors.
An important role we have in strengthening our community is ensuring that all children can have a KSS experience. Our Scholarship Fund provides all families and children access to the KSS Magic regardless of their financial capacity.
Common challenges to sustaining living and working in the mountains were exacerbated by COVID-19 and are persisting for our local families. We are dedicated to continuing to offer substantial scholarships to our local families and their children and any family experiencing financial hardships.
Scholarships are available for all KSS programs. Annually, our largest distribution of scholarships is for our summer camp programs. This summer our Scholarship Committee assisted with giving over $55,000 in scholarship awards to 100 families whose children are experiencing our outdoors and the KSS Magic. This is a $10k increase over the average total summer scholarship award in the last three years.
We invite you to help us raise $10,000 for our Scholarship Fund during the evening of Science. Adventure. FIESTA! so we can continue to provide future families with the gift of KSS.
