Summer Grant Program


Summer Grant Program Guidelines

The Summer Grant Program supports standalone summer programs for children and youth participants under 18 years of age. Summer programs must be held between June 1 and August 31. Types of programs typically supported include summer camps and day programs offering positive recreation, arts, culture and learning opportunities for children and youth. Summer grants are not intended to support school-related programs; summer fairs or events; adult or all-age programs that occur during the summer; or the summer portion of year-round programming.
