What We Do

Since 2003, The Skyline Foundation has provided over 200 summer camp scholarships to girls ages 6-16 from across the southeastern United States. We firmly believe in the skills and values that camp instills in young girls and women. Affiliated with Camp Skyline Ranch, we raise funds exclusively used for full and partial scholarships for campers to attend one and two week sessions.

We seek to provide girls with the opportunity to explore nature, lead an active lifestyle, make lasting and true friendships, adventure outside of their comfort zone, try new activities, acquire new skills, and ultimately, have fun. In a world filled with pressure from social media platforms, celebrity culture, competitive classroom settings, and continued "connected-ness", camp offers limitless opportunities to be yourself, form face-to-face relationships, build confidence, and develop independence. The Skyline Foundation has made it their mission to offer this experience to more girls from the many communities of the southeastern United States. 


How To Join The Mission

The Skyline Foundation has many ways you can get involved and support our mission. To directly support our cause, donations of any level are graciously welcomed. We also offer several products including Tervis Tumblers, camp cookbooks, quilts, personalized christmas ornaments, and more. Additionally, we have several events you can partake in and volunteer with to help us raise money. Please email our president, Frances Lindsey, at info@theskylinefoundation.org for more information.  


Who We Are

Skyline Foundation, Inc. was founded by a group of women and men who either attended Camp Skyline Ranch or sent their daughters to Camp Skyline Ranch. The camp experience impacted these lives so much the foundation was started in hopes of giving the same experience to other girls.

The Skyline Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization established in 2003. Its purpose is to help families send their daughters to camp who could not otherwise financially afford to do so. Since its inception, Skyline Foundation, Inc. has given over 200 scholarships.

If you wish to apply for a scholarship, email us at admin@theskylinefoundation.org.

There are many stakeholders who see the importance camp can have in the life of a girl. From Foundation members to alumnae to current campers, each has been committed to the success of the Foundation. Many summers ago, campers started to give their money to help their friends come to camp. This started the Campers Helping Campers program. Campers who chose to donate are recognized in Camp Skyline's patch ceremony at the end of each session. Since 2011, our staff has donated enough of their own funds to send mulitple children to camp each summer.

I love meeting new people, getting closer to God, and learning about myself. I hope in years to come I will still be attending Camp Skyline, and one day I hope to become a counselor.

This one experience alone has taught me that I shouldn't doubt myself or put myself down.

This was my fifth summer at camp.  It is my favorite part of the summer.  I have met so many friends that I keep in touch with year round.  I really enjoy all of the activities at camp!  I would not be able to attend camp without the help from the skyline foundation.  Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to attend the best camp in the world!  I hope to be able to come back next year!

Camp Skyline was so fun and it was a great experience!  If it weren't for the Skyline Foundation, I do not believe I would’ve been able to come to camp. Thank you for this great scholarship and experience!

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to come to camp this summer!  I had a blast!  My favorite activities were horseback riding and swimming.  I miss my friends.  Sports was fun (archery and tennis).  I can’t wait to come back next year.
