Financial Assistance

The Lawrence Hidden Valley Committee has established a Scholarship Committee in order to offer financial assistance for Girl Scout troops, adults and individual girls. This money is to supplement, not replace the financial assistance that is already available from the Girl Scout Council. We offer assistance that applies only to the Lawrence area and Hidden Valley Camp in order to encourage camping and frequent use of our wonderful camp. All requests will be confidential and screened by the Hidden Valley Scholarship Committee. Preferred method of submittal is on-line. You may also download the PDF, print and mail, or submit through Adobe Reader. Please contact webmaster, with any questions.

  1. Troop Assistance
    Financial assistance for cookouts, campouts, or new troops who need "start up" materials such as an American flag, snacks, craft materials, etc.

  2. Camperships/GS Destinations (formerly Wider Ops) 
    Provide supplemental financial assistance to girls who are receiving Girl Scouts of NE KS & NW MO camperships for residence camp or national/international Destinations. Amount is based on financial need.

  3. Child Care Assistance
    Assist with child care expenses for troop leaders taking training and adult volunteers who are working at day camp.

All requests must be submitted 3 weeks prior to an event–no exceptions.

High School Scholarships

Application forms will be available at the seven area high school guidance offices: Baldwin, Eudora, Lawrence Free State, Lawrence High, Perry/Lecompton, Bishop Seabury Academy and Veritas Christian School.
