Sponsoring a camper

Information on how to reserve a place in Hog Island programs for a scholarship recipient.

If your organization is offering a scholarship, you may reserve a place in a program with a $100 deposit, prior to knowing who will receive the scholarship. 

New to offering a scholarship to Hog Island? If your group has not offered a scholarship to Hog Island in the past 3 years, we have $250 of matching funds available for nonprofit (501c3) organizations that would like to offer a scholarship in one of our programs. Your organization does not need to be affiliated with Audubon to qualify. To receive the matching funds, send an email indicating what organization you are representing and and we will apply the $250 matching funds to your reservation once you have paid the $250 with a credit card over the phone. The $100 deposit counts toward the $250 total. Contact our staff at hogisland@audubon.org or (207) 360-7733, with any questions about eligibility or the reservation process.

Programs with registration through Holbrook Travel for our Costa Rica Teen camp should email hogisland@audubon.org to discuss matching funds.

"When I came to Hog island I didn't know what to expect. Five days later I had been rewarded with the most transformative professional development experiences I have had as a teacher."

To ensure we have your updated contact information, fill out the google form. Starting October 11th you can pre-register online - check back for a link!  Lastly, you can register in your traditional fashion starting on October 25th by logging into your account and selecting the program you wish to sponsor.  Place "Scholarship Winner" as the first and last name and pay the $100 deposit.  You can send your scholarship recipient's information at a later date . Alternatively, you may also call the Hog Island office at (207) 360-7733.

Set your application deadlines appropriately to have the selected participant's information to us by March 15th.  This year we will ask that sponsoring organizations fill out a google form with their winner's information. See the cancellation policies for full terms and refund information (same as individual registrations). Alternatively, if the scholarship winner has already been chosen, you can request that individuals register on their own and then reimburse them directly. The person or group that makes the registration will be responsible for full payment of the balance by March15th. If the camper registers on their own, we appreciate knowing your group that sponsored them in the program.
