Funding is available from Volusia County’s Community Assistance Division for nonprofits, municipalities, schools, and churches to administer summer camp services from June 5 to August 11, 2023.

According to a release, organizations must attend one of two workshops, which will be held at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, January 24, and at 3 p.m. Wednesday, January 25, in the County Council Chambers at the Thomas C. Kelly Administration Center at 123 W. Indiana Avenue in DeLand. Applicant organizations interested in participating also have the option to attend one of the workshops virtually. Applicants must have proven administrative capacity and at least one year of experience administering a summer camp or similar program.

Camp operations from participating organizations must run Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for a minimum of six weeks, and include the following services:

 

  • Supervised playground activities
  • Sports
  • Arts and crafts
  • Field trips for children ages five through 14. 

 

Five-year-old children must have completed kindergarten before attending a camp, and those serving primarily special needs children may accept applicants up to age 17. Organizations running summer camps are encouraged to prioritize healthy eating and physical activity.

Scholarships are available to children whose families are at or below 200% of the current federal poverty guidelines. Providers will be paid per child based on attendance at a rate not exceeding the maximum weekly rate established by the division.

Applications can be found online at www.volusia.org/community_assistance/applications or by contacting Antoinette Cannon at 386-736-5955, ext. 12962, or acannon@volusia.org. The deadline to submit applications is 10 a.m. Wednesday, February 1.
