Bear Pole Scholarship Fund

Bear Pole Expeditions  is Changing the World Through Transformative Outdoor Adventures. Now more than ever, we believe Bear Pole is uniquely positioned to equip the next generation of campers for success in a fast-changing world.

Camper diversity
is an important part of our mission. The camp experience should be an integral and essential part of a child's education, but for many families, camp is an impractical luxury. As we endeavor to create a richly diverse camper population, our scholarship fund provides tuition assistance to families who would not otherwise be able to attend. More than 40% of our campers count on scholarships to attend camp.

YOUR investment makes this possible, ensuring that campers from the widest range of backgrounds can attend camp. Our ability to change lives depends in large part on the generous support of alumni and friends like you. Join us as we continue this exciting journey, helping to make it a better world through adventure education. As a 501(c)(3) non profit educational charity, your contribution is tax deductible.
