Summer Camp Scholarships
The Summer Camp Scholarship Program is intended to reimburse Public Safety employee families for registration fees paid for their children to attend summer camp. Families that send two or more children to summer camp are given priority consideration. Qualifying ages for this scholarship are for children in the age of 5 to 18 years old.
