The Elk Mountain Tents Outdoors Enthusiast Scholarship

Overview

We at Elk Mountain Tents have experienced great joy and pleasure just being outside and enjoying all that nature has to offer. We’ve also been blessed to see a lot of growth as a company in the last few years. As such, we would like to start giving back to the community by helping one student per year who shares our love for the outdoors.

We are looking for a stellar individual with an appreciation for the great outdoors who captures the adventurous spirit that has come to embody the Elk Mountain Tents brand. If that sounds like you, please apply! Or, if that sounds like someone you know, please share this opportunity with them!
