Every year, corps and individuals make camp possible for those who could not otherwise afford it with their generous donations. Thank you! You are appreciated!

If you wish to apply for either a full or partial scholarship, please complete a scholarship application. Here is the basic scholarship information:

  • We have a limited number of full and partial scholarships to award to campers who apply for scholarships. An application submission does not guarantee a scholarship to camp.  
  • The Scholarship Application Deadline is June 15.
  • Scholarship recipients will be informed of any awards by July 1.
  • If your child is not awarded a scholarship or is awarded a partial scholarship, any tuition balance is due before the start of camp. 


Annual Scholarships

The Sweetness of Mary Scholarship, an annual scholarship

Many years ago, the 1st Michigan Colonial Fife and Drum Corps generously established the annual Sweetness of Mary Scholarship in honor of their cofounder, Mary Logsdon. Mary carried the heart of the 1st Michigan and supported the junior members of the Corps in any way she could. Her support helped the members find and reach their highest potential both in the Corps and in life. To honor Mary’s dedication to supporting youth development and youth activities, both in the Corps and in her role as a school teacher, the 1st Michigan created the Sweetness of Mary Scholarship to send young people to Junior Camp. 


Junior Camp Scholarship

A limited number of scholarships will be made to applicants based on need and merit.
