Financial Assistance Program
Empowering All Kids through Outdoor Adventure


Avid4 Adventure empowers more kids to choose active, outdoor lifestyles by offering summer camp financial assistance for low and middle income families. Every year, we have been pleased to offer increasingly more financial assistance through both partial and full assistance packages.

Generous families and partners make our financial assistance program possible. We match donations 100%! Donations may be given any of these ways:
