Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships
Camp Cancelled Due to COVID-19
Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the difficult decision has been made not to offer the Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships this year. We feel this decision is in the best interest of scholarship applicants and their families given the challenges of the current pandemic. We remain optimistic that we can resume this opportunity in 2022 when campers can once again experience the full benefits of the program. Middle school students at qualifying schools are encouraged to apply for a scholarship to attend camp in summer 2022. Applicants will be judged on their academics, extracurricular activities and an essay. The application period will begin on January 1, 2022 with a final deadline of March 31, 2022.
