Routt Church Camp Scholarship


Grants to a Attend Church Camp or a Mission Trip


“I’m thankful for the scholarship which allowed me to go to camp where I grew closer to God and learned more about how to serve others and help me grow closer to Christ.”                 Gavin Gass, 13


Hardin County youth now have the opportunity to apply for a grant to offset the costs of participation in a church camp or mission trip within the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Lahoma Routt established The Lahoma Routt Fund, an endowment with Central Kentucky Community Foundation, to provide funding to offset the cost of church camp and mission trip fees each year for several students. By establishing an endowment fund, Routt, is providing an opportunity for future generations of church youth in Hardin County to benefit from her generosity.

Mrs. Routt’s generosity gives opportunities for youth in our community to grow in their faith,” said Davette B. Swiney, President/CEO of CKCF. “She knew what she wanted to accomplish – to relieve a financial burden for families so more youth could benefit from these experiences. We worked with Mrs. Routt to create a way to carry out her desires. Her impact will continue forever.”


Scholarship Applications are available in January each year and due March 15th.
