Commercial Park Advisory Council received this information and wanted to pass it on.

Thanks to a grant of over $200,000 from Parkways Foundation eligible Chicago families will receive scholarships for the Chicago Park Districts summer day camp program.  The grant will allow the Chicago Park District to subsidize eligible children at a rate of 50% or 75% of the cost to attend the six-week long session.

On Thursday, March 18 from 10 a.m. 9 p.m. and Saturday, March 20 from 9 a.m. 12 p.m., parents can submit required paperwork to see if they qualify at designated scholarship processing centers at nine citywide parks.  For more information, call the scholarship information line at 312.742.5734 or click here for full details from the CPD website: Scholarship Info
