Clinton Cully Farlee Memorial Camp Scholarship

This scholarship fund has been created in loving memory of Clinton Farlee of Dupree, South Dakota. Clinton attended camp for six years; the time spent here had an immeasurable impact not only on himself, but on the very fabric of our camp. He exemplified integrity. He was personable, committed, loyal, and fearless. He was always willing to take a risk and if he failed, he would learn from his mistakes, get up, and try again.

During Clinton’s final year at camp, he wore a shirt, which had a quote from Ernest Hemingway printed on it. The quote, while so accurate, only begins to accomplish the impossible task of describing the kind of person Clinton was: 

“The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice.”

Clinton’s memory lives on and reminds us each and every day how and why we must always strive to be our best selves not for any selfish reasons, but rather to better the lives of those we love: our family, friends, and community.

In establishing this scholarship, Clinton’s parents, sister, and camp family wish to recognize one middle school student and one high school student who are dedicated to using their gifts and talents to think and act bravely, generously and with integrity.


Applicants are asked to submit a personal statement of no more than 900 words addressing the following:

  1. Why you want to attend Catalyst Collective Camp;
  2. What you hope to learn while at camp; 
  3. What it means to take a risk; and
  4. How you plan to use what you learn to think and act with bravery, generosity and integrity in your school and community.

The submission deadline is the same as camp registration — June 14th at 11:59 PM. Completed statements should be properly titled and sent to Alyssa.Herman83@gmail.com. Scholarship funds will be dispersed by Clinton’s family once a recipient is chosen.
