Social Services offers qualified recipients scholarship funds for camp through their Community Action Program.  Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis and can cover up to 5 weeks of camp per child.  To apply, submit this packet directly to Goochland Social Services (1800 Sandy Hook Road, PO Box 34, Goochland, VA 23063).  Please direct questions to 804-556-5880.

Please note that you must complete a Camper Packet for all campers prior to registering them for their first camp.  This process can be completed online (click this link) or in-office.  This ensures that we have up-to-date contact, medical, and authorized pickup information on file for each child.
