Scholarship Applications​

One scholarship will be available the junior camp. Please contact AFK for the application package.

"In the summer before Grade 8, I was awarded a scholarship to attend the Paradise Valley Summer School of Visual Arts with artist Etienne Zack. Being the eldest child in my family, I was extremely nervous about going into high school, as I didn't have an older sibling to look up to. However, during that week at camp, I was able to befriend other teens who were just as friendly as they were talented. Not only did I get to paint and canoe for five days, but the AFK summer school experience made my first big life transition that much easier." 

— Sophia Boutsakis, Grade 12 (Alumna)
