Mt. Cross has committed to making sure that no one is turned away from camp due to an inability to pay. While all dollars donated to Mt. Cross, regardless of whether they are designated for the Campership Fund or not, are used for this purpose, a full Campership Fund helps keep other operating funds available.
If you or a family you know needs financial support in sending their child to camp, click here for more information on how to apply for a Campership.
