LEAD Discount Opportunities

We strive to keep the registration costs of LEAD low. Through the support of generous donors from around the country we are able to offer financial aid, discounts, and scholarships. We know that these fees can be difficult for some families, and we want to provide everyone with as many options to keep LEAD affordable as possible. Check out the information below on the programs available to help you reduce the cost of camp registration this summer!

Referral Discount - Bring a Friend, Earn $25

Students who will be attending LEAD this summer can bring a friend to LEAD and save!

For every first-time attendee you refer who attends camp (with the exception of siblings or children), you will earn $25. There is no limit to how many friends you can refer. You can even save your friends $100 by sharing a code for the Youth Empowerment Scholarship (see the section below for more information).

For you to be credited the $25 per referral, enter the name(s) of any student you are referring in the form below. Any students you refer must also put your name on their registration form as the person who referred them. The total money earned will be given by check.

So get out there and go talk with some friends who haven’t heard about LEAD! You can request brochures and posters (for free!) to help spread the word, and don’t forget to read about the Youth Empowerment Scholarship below so that your friends can save $100!

If you have any questions, please contact the office at 517-321-6233 or email office@ssionline.org.

Y.E.S. Program - $100 Scholarship for First-Time Students

–Then check the box next to “I would like to request the $100 Youth Empowerment Scholarship (YES) available for first-time LEAD students.”
–You will then receive an email with instructions on how to apply the code during registration. Once the code is typed into the “Scholarship Code” field, the $100 scholarship will be applied automatically.
Do not complete your registration until you have applied the code.

Anyone can become a recruiter and share this scholarship opportunity with others. Complete the form here or contact our office to receive a code to give to others.

Feel free to reach out to us with any questions.

Financial Aid Options

Thanks to a group of incredibly generous donors, we’ve never had to turn a single student away from LEAD due to lack of funds. If the registration cost would be a burden to you or your family, please consider pursuing the discounts above and submitting a financial aid application at ssionline.org/lead/financial-aid. We want every student to be able to experience a life-changing week of LEAD for themselves!
