Summer Camp


What are Summer Camp Scholarships?

Summer Camp Scholarships are fee waivers available to help eligible families decrease the cost of Recreation Summer Camp Program fees. Summer Camp Scholarships are only available for Nottingham Recreation's 8 week summer camp programs, not in addition to camps such as soccer, basketball, mad science, horse, swim classes, etc. Scholarships can be rewarded to children going into our Summer Camp & Pioneer grades 1st-6th. Our goal is to be able to help those families who are in need of financial assistance during the summer. Those awarded scholarships will be provided with 2 snacks and 1 lunch (lunch will be a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or sun butter and jelly) for every day of camp. Scholarships are only awarded to Nottingham Residents.

We are only able to do this each year through fundraising and donations. If you or anyone you know would like to donate to a specific child or just to our fund please mail all donations to the information below.
