Harbor deWaard was a shining light in Big Sky – a little boy who valued community service and helping others. An adventurous soul, Harbor loved exploring the bottom of rivers, the top of Lone Peak and everything in between.  He had a sweet, beautiful smile, a kind and caring heart, and was one of the brightest stars to shine at Camp Moonlight.

It is in that spirit that the Moonlight Community Foundation is honored to announce the Harbor Kingston deWaard Camp Moonlight Community Service Award! This will be gifted to one camper each session at Camp Moonlight. Full tuition will be awarded to the applicants who best demonstrate what community service in Big Sky means to them.

Applicants age 8-13 should submit an essay, and campers age 5-7 a hand drawn picture.  Winners will have their name placed on a plaque, be acknowledged in print and online, and will receive a Camp Moonlight cape to serve as a reminder of the little superhero in all of us. The 2018 scholarships will be available March 1st.  Please submit them to or deliver them to the front office of Ophir School in care of Jeremy Harder
