Cubs Camp Scholarships for Children

Commitment

Columbia University offers 25 scholarships per summer based upon financial need for children from the Manhattanville in West Harlem area to attend Columbia's Summer Sports Camp: Little Lions Camp.  One scholarship is equal to one week of summer camp.

In Fall 2016, Columbia Athletics changed the name of this program from Cubs Camp to Little Lions Camp. The services provided and process for scholarship distribution remains the same.

Eligibility

  • All scholarship applications must come to Columbia University through the West Harlem Development Corporation (WHDC).  For more information on eligibility, please contact the WHDC at: http://westharlemdc.org.
  • Campers must be between the ages of 6 and 12
