Summer Academic Enrichment
UNCW MarineQuest would like to invite you to dive into summer with one of its exciting enrichment programs. We also offer a wide variety of challenging FUNdamental learning experiences that are sure to enhance your summer vacation. With art, business and chemistry we have the ABCs covered but we also have programs in design, engineering, forensics, history, literacy, robotics and theater. From half-day commuter camps for pre-kindergarten children to multi-week residential programs for highly motivated and gifted teens, we offer something for just about everyone.
Scholarship Opportunities: We are able to provide a limited number of partial to full scholarships for local families who can demonstrate financial need. We can only award one camp scholarship to any particular child. If you would like to be considered for a commuter camp scholarship and you are a North Carolina resident, please send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org (no phone inquiries, please):
- Child's full name and birthdate, along with legal parent's or guardian's name
- Address, email and phone number where they can be reached
- Camp they wish to attend and weeks they are available to attend
Proof of financial need also will be required. The following documents qualify:
- A letter from your school system verifying the camper’s participation in a free or reduced lunch program
- Proof of housing assistance through HUD

- Health coverage through Medicaid state agency
- A letter from a school representative classifying student as an “at-risk youth”
Camper information will be kept in our scholarship database. Ten days to a week prior to any camp start date we will determine the number of scholarship slots available and contact applicants on a first come first serve basis as listed in the database.
