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


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

We consider a session to be a single program where the same campers attend without new campers joining during that period of time. Typically, a session is 3 – 7 days long, with some exceptions. Sessions are NOT the entire summer. Sessions are not overnight. Each applicant can only receive a grant for one session.

Qualified camp providers include non-profit arts organizations, nonprofit organizations that offer arts programming, community centers, libraries, and city or county programs open to the public who offer arts programming. While the participating organization does 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 – not simply have an arts component (theatre, dance, photography, music, etc.) Each applicant can only receive a grant for one session.

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 organizations may not receive funding, and not all organizations will receive the full funding.
