Kfoury EcoVenture Scholarships

The Ed and Patty Kfoury EcoVenture Scholarship was founded in 2014 to provide long-term financial stability to EcoVenture. These funds are raised and appropriated annually to provide lower tuition to families in the Rangeley community. Families who live and work in the Rangeley community are encouraged to apply for a scholarship if cost is an obstacle to their camper attending.
