Youth Scholarships  (18 - 30 Years)

Each year Dance Camp Aotearoa applies for extra funding to make the Dance Camp experience affordable for young adults.   Grants from DUPNZ and Oneness Foundation make this possible! (Thank you to them!).

If you are a young adult and wish to apply for scholarship please email us at:   Note that the number of scholarships are limited and varies each year. Please check the Kaiãwhina opportunities as the first option, as we need a number of Beloveds to help us out in those roles in exchange for 50% discount on you camp fee.  


Adult Scholarships

The generosity of the camp community through the Auction, Craft Stalls, Cafe and donations all create another opportunity to support those who would struggle financially to attend Camp.   To apply, we offer a quick form for you to outline your circumstances that make it difficult for you to cover the full cost of attending (a simple explanation of your financial difficulty). 

NOTE: Scholarships are available for full week only.

Please email: and the scholarship form will be sent to you. 

Each application will be considered individually and confidentually. The number of scholarships is limited and varied, depending on the amount of funding received the previous year.   (Please note: prior recipients of a scholarship may not be awarded a scholarship the following year).  


Application Deadlines

Early scholarship applications will be processed and decided on by October 10th.  

Applications received after that date will be considered if funds remain, in a second round by November 30th.

Unfortunately, we are unable to consider scholarship applications after November 30th.  Kaiãwhina positions may still be available, depending on demand, and you are encouraged to consider that opportunity.
