Camp Scholarships

Originally set up as the Jon Francis Scholarship Fund in 2007, our scholarships, which we call "Camperships," provide children and adults who require financial assistance for any reason an incredible experience at Luther Heights. Jon Francis, a camper and counselor at Luther Heights Bible Camp, loved teaching and mentoring children in the beauty of God's creation. The Jon Francis Scholarship fund was created to continue his youth ministry to endow scholarships in his name and memory. Your generosity will ensure the continuation of Jon's youth education ministry and make a positive difference in the lives of many campers. Learn more at Jon Francis Foundation
