Grants ranging from $2,500 to $15,000 to North Carolina organizations that administer summer camp programs to provide camp scholarships for children within the Foundation's service area. Scholarships are intended for children at-risk, ages 5-17, who would otherwise be unable to attend camp due to financial constraint or family situation. Grants are intended to benefit children from Chatham, Wake, Orange, and Durham counties.

Both overnight and day (minimum 5 days per week) camps will be considered, with preference given to full-day and overnight camps. Programming must be open to children of all faiths.

The Send A Kid To Camp program of the Triangle Community Foundation seeks to provide a safe, educational, healthy outlet for children at-risk, and to combat summer learning loss among low-income children, by providing camp tuition assistance to families with financial constraints.

Priority will be given to programs that:

- Reach youth of color, youth from low-income families, youth with disabilities, youth with limited English proficiency, and youth attending low performing schools.
- Offer accommodations for campers with special needs.
- Provide transportation and meals for campers receiving tuition assistance.
- Reduce summer learning loss by providing high-quality learning instruction by trained staff and have a low camper to counselor ratio. Incorporate academic enrichment activities as a part of the camp programming to reduce summer learning loss.
- Communicate with and engage parents or guardians before, during, and after camp.
