Girls and Wildlife Camp Scholarships

“Girls and Wildlife” Camp Sponsorship Application

We have the pleasure to be able to offer over 20 scholarships for our “Girls and Wildlife” Camps, including our Science Rocks! Day-Off sessions and Summer Camp, thanks to funding from SWEP (Society of Women Environmental Professionals) of Greater Philadelphia!

SWEP’s mission is to encourage and promote leadership, achievement, and the professional development of women in the environmental field.

The Cedar Run education department offers a wide variety of hands-on, engaging educational programs on topics ranging from wildlife rehabilitation to habitat conservation to environmental protection. Cedar Run’s programs are based on the principles of STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), and our staff are constantly looking for new ways to engage students and spark a life-long interest in science and nature.
