The City of Reno is committed to providing recreational opportunities to all residents regardless of economic circumstances. For this reason, a limited fund scholarship program is available to those who qualify. If you have wanted to participate in our all-day camps, before and after school programs or qualified classes but couldn’t because of financial circumstances, we encourage you to apply.
Income level, family size, and other criteria determine whether or not a scholarship is awarded. Many families that qualify for a reduced program fee are not taking advantage of the opportunity simply because they haven't asked to be considered. For example, a family of four with a gross monthly income up to $3700 qualifies for a reduced program fee, and a family of seven can receive assistance with a gross monthly income of up to $5100.
