Financial Aid Policy

At Briar Bush Nature Center, we believe nature is for everyone.


To apply for financial aid, submit an electronic application with required materials or call for a paper application. Financial aid is determined on a rolling, first-come-first-served basis until funding is dispersed.

As processing applications can take up to two weeks, applications submitted from 1/24/24 onward will be processed after Summer Camp Registration opens and will be determined based on eligibility and camp availability.

U.S. Poverty Guidelines are used to determine eligibility to receive financial aid. Financial aid may be granted partially or in full.

Briar Bush Nature Center reviews applicants for financial aid without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age disability, or genetics.

Briar Bush Nature Center reserves the right to refuse financial aid to any applicant. Briar Bush Nature Center has the right to terminate financial aid immediately if false information was presented.
