Camp Fire Inland Northwest | Light the fire within!

Financial Assistance

Camp Fire Inland Northwest wants to help as many youth as they can  to experience camp and find their spark. Camp scholarships are provided for families who are financially unable to pay the full fee. Scholarships are funded by United Way of Spokane County, United Way of North Idaho, the Henry Day Neewahlu Trust, and Camp Fire Inland Northwest's donors.

Financial assistance applications are now open until December 31st at midnight.

Important Financial Assistance Application Dates

November 1st, 2023: Financial Aid Application Opens

This can be found in your CampInTouch account under Forms & Documents. If you attended Camp in 2023, you already have an account. If this is your first time attending a Camp Fire Camp, you must create an account. Use the links below for either option. Creating an account does not apply your child for financial assistance. You still have to fill out the Financial Assistance Application in your account. You must also submit a proof of income using your 2022 taxes. 

December 31st, 2023: Application Closes

January 15th, 2024: Families notified via email of amount of assistance awarded and we need an acceptance.

Families must respond with acceptance of financial assistance to the Camp Fire office via email or phone call for financial assistance to be put on account.

Families who accepted financial assistance have 7 days to complete registration for a Camp Fire program and utilize their financial assistance credit. We advise this in order for our financial assistance campers to avoid missing registration and being put on a waitlist.

 

Proof of Income Needed for Application Process

Please submit the first two pages of your 2022 Federal Tax Return.  This proof of income is required in order to complete your financial assistance application. If you are not filing your 2022 taxes, please contact the office for additional guidance (campfire@campfireinc.org).

If you need assistance or have questions about this requirement, please contact our office at (509) 747-6191.
