The Best Day Ever Bursary Fund is a limited fund that enables people to participate who would otherwise not be able to afford the full cost of Pine programs. The fund only provides assistance for program fees, not for travel or other costs. The majority of our bursaries are for 20-50% of a program’s tuition; however, in some cases, up to 70% is awarded. Priority is given to children and families, and to educators working with children and families. As the availability of bursaries is limited, we ask that bursary recipients attend the majority of the program.
To be considered within the first round of bursary applications, we ask that registered participants submit their applications by the following deadlines:
- March Break: December 1
- Summer Camps: April 1
- Outdoor School: August 1 (*delayed for 2020/21 programs)
- Wild Deer: November 1
Following the first round, applications will be considered on a rolling basis, but we cannot guarantee the availability of funds.
*Bursary applications are only assessed for registered participants. Please register for your chosen program, pay the deposit and enrol in a payment plan prior to applying for a bursary. We try our very best to work with each family to make the program accessible; in the rare case that we are not able to meet your financial need, we will provide a full refund. If you are not able to pay the deposit prior to receiving a bursary, please reach out to our team at email@example.com.
**Please complete one application per participant per program.
