Mayor announces city's first camp scholarship program

On Tuesday Mayor Jerry Abramson announced that, for the first time, the city will offer scholarships to help parents pay for summer camp. The city will also offer its annual Summer Food Service Program to ensure students who eat lunch at school have access to nutritious meals while school isn't in session.

"We want to make sure all of our kids have a healthy and safe summer," Abramson said. "Providing quality activities for our children is the best way to ensure they have a fun summer that is filled with caring adults and plenty of opportunities for learning."

Parents will be able to pick up information about both programs and other activities at a new Summer Kick-Off Festival on Saturday, May 19 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Waterfront Park's Harbor Lawn. The festival will include booths, food, games, art, crafts, prizes and entertainment provided by Radio Disney.

The camp scholarships, offered by the Louisville Metro Department of Housing and Family Services, will provide summer-camp opportunities for children between the ages of five and 18. Five hundred scholarships are available for parents. Each child can receive up to $400 in scholarships depending on income.
