Other Things to Know
- If your application is approved for this program you will be eligible to get a grant to attend one arts-oriented summer camp session at a qualified Pinellas county organization or program – as long as funds are available.
- This grant includes going to camp at arts centers, community centers, city programs and more. (Qualified organizations in Pinellas County include non- profit arts organizations and community organizations, and city or county program open to the public who offer arts programming.)
- Even if you receive a grant, that does not mean the camp has space available. You still need to register and be accepted at the camp you want to attend.
- A session is a single program where the same campers attend without new campers joining during that period of time. Typically, a session is one week, with some exceptions (especially for theater camps.) Sessions are not the entire summer. Sessions are not overnight.
