Give Play Scholarship Funding
Give Play is an initiative supported by the City of Oaks Foundation and the City of Raleigh Parks Recreation and Cultural Resources Department.

Children and teens ages 7-14 are invited to apply for scholarships to attend nature and outdoor themed summer camps at locations around the city, including Durant Nature Preserve, Method Road Community Center, Sgt Courtney T Johnson Neighborhood Center, and Walnut Creek Wetland Park.
