The City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department and The Dallas Parks Foundation provide scholarships to assist youth ages five to twelve to participate in eight weeks of recreation center summer camp programs. We believe children should be given the opportunity to explore, interact and learn while having fun.
Who is eligible for financial assistance?
Residents of the City of Dallas may apply for financial assistance. Approval of the application is made on an individual basis. Individuals who receive any type of government assistance are automatically eligible for a scholarship. Those that
do not receive any type of assistance will be qualified if they fall below the HUD income limits of “Very Low” using proof of income (check stub or first page of previous year’s tax return).
What type of information is required for the application?

Provide proof of Dallas residency (copy of water, utility, or mortgage statement)
Proof of household income (a recent pay stub from your employer or a copy of the FIRST PAGE of last year’s tax
Proof of participation in another qualified financial assistance program (if applicable)
What if I receive financial assistance from another agency?
Proof of current participation in one or more of the following programs: WIC, CHIP, TANF, SNAP or Medicaid confirms eligibility but does not guarantee a scholarship.
Is there a maximum scholarship amount that can be given?
The financial award from the Dallas Park and Recreation Department will be up to 8 weeks of summer camp for up to eight children in a family. Scholarships are non-transferable and may only be used for designated recipient. Cash refunds
or account credits will not be given.
