registration. Once classes reach a designated enrollment level,
out-of-county applicants are also considered. Students are accepted

available, not all who apply will be admitted to Sugarloaf.
The Sugarloaf Foundation raises money for student
scholarships. Families who need financial assistance can apply during the
camp application process. The Foundation’s website, www.sugarloafstationfoundation.org,
has information on scholarships and how to support Sugarloaf campers by
