Summer Camp Scholarships

Back to Summer Camps home

Full scholarships* are available for Bell Museum summer campers on a first-come, first-serve basis, based on financial need.

Please fill out one form per child.

Note: In-person camp scholarships are full, but there are still virtual camp scholarships available.

Registration and scholarship applications open March 17 for Bell Museum members and March 24 for nonmembers. If you would like to become a Bell Museum member, learn more about qualifying for our Curiosity Membership and other levels of membership here.

A very limited number of scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Filling out this form DOES NOT guarantee you will receive a scholarship.

Next steps include communication from the Bell Camp staff confirming your selection (within two weeks), then we’ll give you instructions to call the ticketing office to pay the nonrefundable fee registration fee* and register your child.

Once you’ve been contacted, you have one week to pay the fee or your camp spot will be released. Please wait until you hear from us; emails inquiring about your status will slow the process for everyone.

Support for Bell Museum camp scholarships generously provided by Boston Scientific Foundation and the WEM foundation.

*There is a registration fee—$40 in-person camps, $15 virtual camps
