The Deadline for Summer of Discovery Scholarships at Edgemoor Recreation Center is May 8.

The Wichita Parks Foundation supports the mission of the Wichita Park & Recreation and recognizes the need within the community to provide assistance to families who otherwise could not afford to participate in summer programs. In 2017,
the Wichita Parks Foundation has set aside funds to help offset costs for children to attend Summer of Discovery programs at Edgemoor Recreation Center. This scholarship program is funded by the Wichita Parks Foundation, thanks to the
generosity of the community.

This Summer of Discovery program is a licensed program through the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, which means families earning less than $45,000 per year are eligible for assistance through KDHE.  If you believe you are eligible for this assistance, please contact KDHE's Department for Children and Families by calling 1-888-369-4777, or visit their website by clicking HERE.  Families making over $45,000 per year are eligible for Foundation scholarships.   This scholarship will pay program fees at the following rates:

Up to 50% of program fees for 1st Child
Up to 75% of program fees for 2nd Child
100% of program fees for 3rd+ Child(ren)

Applications and more information is available at the Edgemoor Recreation Center, or by contacting the Wichita Parks Foundation at
