St. Andrew’s Parks and Playground offers full and partial recreational scholarships based on financial need. Applicants must complete an official scholarship application form four weeks prior to the registration deadline for the program they wish to attend.
Children 18 and under who meet all requirements for the program they wish to attend and who qualify for the Federal Free Lunch program and/or the 2006 Department of Health and Human Services Poverty Guidelines. St. Andrew’s Public Service District (PSD) residents will receive preference for all scholarships.
In cases where insufficient funds exist to cover all eligible applicants, other considerations such as medical bills, number of other dependent children in the household, and annual income will be taken into account to determine scholarship recipients.
Forms are available at the Parks and Playground office or at St. Andrew’s Family Fitness Plus or you may print the application. Applications must include verification of the child’s free or reduced lunch status. Children who are not yet in school may get a letter from the local DSS office verifying their approval for AFDC.
Please note: in order to provide the maximum amount of scholarships to qualified participants, St. Andrew’s will only provide scholarships for one program per request. (I.E. One week of summer camp, one session of a program etc).
Applicants may apply once per year for any program. Approved applicants have two weeks to register for the designated program after they are approved. We will contact all applicants of their status via phone or mail. Call (843) 763-4360 for more information.
Please note that completion of the form does NOT guarantee enrollment in the program; participants must meet all eligibility criteria.
