We have a long tradition of providing camper scholarships to those in need of financial assistance, which we raise through individual, church, and corporate donations. Last year we awarded $320,000 in full and partial scholarships to young men and women who would not have been able to attend camp otherwise.
Here are specific ways you can help us impact more lives:
$8,750 Provide a Week of Camp for 10 Campers
$4,375 Provide a Week of Camp for 5 Campers
$875 Provide a Full Scholarship for 1 Camper
$600 Provide a partial scholarship for 1 Camper Scholarship
$140 Provide 1 Day of Camp for 1 Camper
Online giving is easy and secure. One-time and recurring giving options are available.

James Evans Memorial Scholarship
April 26, 2002 – October 13, 2012
This scholarship fund has been created to honor the life of James Whitaker Evans, who passed away at the young age of 10, but left this world with a smile on his face and a message that he always imparted to others that without humor, life is just too serious. James Evans loved life, loved his friends, and loved Camp Cho-Yeh.
Kobi Pickett Memorial Scholarship
March 15, 1999 – January 11, 2015
Camp Cho-Yeh is blessed to have had the opportunity to shape, love, teach, and guide Kobi for 5 summers. She will forever be remembered, not only as an outstanding camper, but as a wise and beautiful young woman who longed to know Jesus and more importantly – to make Him known.
Leonard and Helen Menius Memorial Scholarship
Leonard and Helen Menius lived a life of service to the Lord, family, country, and their local Church. Leonard served with the U.S. Air Force during WWII and then went on to spend most of his career as the Director of Industrial Relations for the Temple-Inland corporation. Helen taught High School home economics and was an integral volunteer in every Presbyterian congregation they were a part of. Together, they raised two sons, Robert and Joe. As a family they spent multiple summers at Cho-Yeh in the 1950’s and 60’s and their entire family has fond memories of their time at Cho-Yeh. Leonard also served on the Board of Directors for Cho-Yeh. The Menius family believes in the mission of Cho-Yeh and desires to invest in the future generations of Cho-Yeh campers. Their scholarship endowment will enable campers of all socioeconomic backgrounds the ability to experience Cho-Yeh.
