Details for Play Foundation

P.L.A.Y. (Parks and Leisure Activities for Adults and Youth) Foundation scholarships have provided summer camps and classes to area youth as well as recreational opportunities for families.

The Department of Parks & Recreation works with County social service agencies to identify those citizens in need of assistance. Parks & Recreation processes eligible requests for scholarships and places family members in the programs of their choice.
In an ongoing effort to meet this challenge, in 1982 the Park Authority established the non-profit P.L.A.Y. Foundation to enable financially disadvantaged children to attend summer camp.
Since its inception, the P.L.A.Y. Foundation has grown in response to the community's needs, to include the entire family. Through this dynamic program, children may attend summer camp or enjoy Karate classes, and family members of all ages benefit from swimming and boating, all free of charge. Funding for the P.L.A.Y. Foundation scholarships are raised by traditional means. Individuals, organizations, and local business provide much needed financial support. It is only through their generosity that we can continue to serve our neighbors in need.
