The Scholarship Fund improves the lives of children in our community. By providing scholarship assistance to youth in need, young members of our community can take part in programs offered by the Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department. Swim lessons at Bryan Park, Banneker Basketball, Hook-A-Kid-On-Golf, and sailing at Lake Lemon are just a few of the many programs, classes, and sports leagues made available to these children through the Scholarship Fund. Additionally, the very valuable Kid City Summer Camp allows these children to participate in healthy experiences during their parent’s work day while school is out for the summer.
The Scholarship Fund annually supports over 100 local families with over 200 children and youth in need. Your gift can continue to provide these young members of our community the opportunity to learn the valuable skills of team-work, discipline and relationship-building through participation in a broad range of park programs and summer camps. Then these children carry these skills into the community through their school, their neighborhood and their family.
