Everything Your Organization Needs to Know About the Arts Summer Camp Grants

OVERVIEW 

The Creative Pinellas Arts Summer Camp Grant was created to make it possible for young people in Pinellas County (ages 5 – 18) to have great arts and cultural experiences by attending a session of an arts summer camp at a camp provider in Pinellas County.

Qualified camp providers include non-profit 501c3 arts organizations, nonprofit organizations that offer arts programming and community centers, libraries and city programs open to the public who offer arts programming to and recruit campers among all youth, and have been offering summer camps for at least three years. While participating organization do not have to be arts focused as their primary mission, in order to qualify, the specific camp being offered has to be primarily arts related (theatre, dance, photography, music, etc.), not simply have and arts component. Each applicant can only receive a grant for one session. A session is a single program where generally the same campers attend without new campers joining during that period of time. Typically, a session is one week, of full days (7 hours) with an exception for theater camps that are sometimes longer in order to produce a show. Sessions are not the entire summer. Sessions are not overnight.

Although we would like to fund everybody who needs financial support and every eligible program, our funds are limited. Additionally, funding is based upon applicants selecting your organization’s camp. So, it is possible that some eligible organizations may not receive funding or may only receive limited funds.
