NEW Summer Camp Scholarships in Play

by Kimberley McGee
summer camp scholarships for kids camps

There are many local camps offering summer camp scholarships. We’ll be adding to this list regularly and sharing updates on our Vegas Kids Zone Facebook page as they come in and are verified. Most camperships are first-come, first-serve basis so I will only post those that are available so you don’t waste your time.

Don’t be intimidated by the process of applying. I have some tips to get you through the process. Make sure to have paperwork handy, such as birth certificates, a utility bill and possibly a pay stub or taxes from last year.

Dahl Music Studios

Local Dahl Studio believes that all children are musical. They want all children and their families to have access to a high-quality music education. Therefore, they’ve created a scholarship program for a limited number of students. 

The application is simple to fill out and the response is quick from this friendly local business. 


YMCA Day Camps

YMCA has financial aid, or camperships, for their many day camps. The summer camp scholarships are good for any YMCA location, although work closely with the one you prefer to attend. Create a good relationship with the staff to help get through the paperwork process. The staff at the local YMCAs are very helpful and want the best for all campers!

They may ask for more documents, but here’s what you will need to start:

  • Recent pay stub
  • Birth certificate for each child
  • Public assistance award letters
  • Last year’s W2s
  • Most current tax return

Clark County Rec Centers

The Clark County Parks and Rec has a scholarship program. I don’t have a lot of details as yet, but the application is pretty simple. You will need a birth certificate. The cost is $19 a day for the day camps around the valley.
