CECI summer camp scholarships available
The Sanctuary Golf Club Foundation recently awarded $25,000 in scholarship funds to the Children’s Education Center of the Islands to enable families to send their preschoolers to summer camp.
It also granted $3,000 in funding to install a sun-protective shade awning at the school.
CECI Executive Director Kerra Pike reported that due to COVID-19, a lot of the families that the school serves have been financially impacted. On average, 25 percent of the students attend on scholarship. In addition, the CECI was unable to hold its annual Spring Festival due to COVID-19.
“The Spring Festival typically raises money to replenish their scholarship program for the upcoming school year,” she said. “Due to recent times, CECI’s scholarship funds were drawing close to depletion.”
“Thankfully, SGCF has granted a sufficient amount of scholarship funds that CECI will be able to grant scholarships to families in desperate need,” Pike added. “This generous grant comes at the most opportune time.”
Open to ages 1-5, the summer camps are running from June 8 through July 31.
