HoneyRock Financial Assistance

We encourage all families to explore our financial assistance and payment options detailed below. If you have questions or concerns please contact our Camper Registration Assistant at honeyrock.register@wheaton.edu.

To Receive Financial Assistance from HoneyRock

To apply for the Matching Scholarship Program or Need-Based Financial Assistance a camper must first be registered for summer camp. Registering a child for camp requires a $150 deposit per child. If the financial assistance you receive is not enough and you choose to cancel your registration, this deposit is returned in full.


We strongly encourage all campers, no matter your family’s financial need, to contribute to their own camp experience through the Matching Scholarship. This gives your camper a deeper sense of ownership for their experience. HoneyRock will match every dollar a child contributes to the program fee up to $200.

For: all campers
Deadline to Apply: encouraged to apply before April 15
Amount: up to $200 match for $400 total*
To Receive Funds:

  1. Register your camper and pay the $150 deposit
  2. Complete “Camper Matching Scholarship” step found in your camper’s registration
  3. Complete “Camper Matching Scholarship Questionnaire” as soon as possible, but no later than April 15Your Camper Matching Scholarship will be awarded within one month of receiving your completed Camper Matching Questionnaire. Your Camper Matching Scholarship application is NOT complete and cannot be processed without the Questionnaire submission.
  4. Help your camper write a thank note to our camper scholarship donors at the conclusion of your camp session. You can mail it to the below address. HoneyRock shares these thank you cards with camper scholarship donors.

*If your camper earns $200 to put towards a HoneyRock program, we will match the full $200 for a total of $400. We will honor the match at any amount up to $200.

If, as you’re considering HoneyRock for your camper, you’re concerned about finances, please complete this form! Don’t count yourself out.

Additional Information

If your financial situation changes between the time you complete the application and send your camper to HoneyRock, we encourage you to edit your application by logging into your account and updating the information, even if you have already received a scholarship.

If this happens, please also notify us by email at honeyrock.register@wheaton.edu of changes you have made.

If you prefer not to cover the cost of your camper’s program at once we can set up a payment plan to pay off your balance over time. Our online system allows for monthly automatic withdrawals from your bank account or credit card.

Thanks to our partnership with Psalm68Five, we have scholarships available for campers growing up without a father or father figure in the home, as noted on our scholarship application. If you are interested in learning more about this specific scholarship, please email honeyrock.register@wheaton.edu

Involving Others

Grandparents and other family members often ask what gifts to buy for Christmas and birthdays. A HoneyRock summer camp experience, or a contribution towards it, makes a great gift! We also suggest talking with your church—there may be ways to work with them to help finance your child's camp experience.
