NOVA Parks Outdoor Kids Fund
Established: November 27, 2016
Local Grants to Support Children Engaging in NatureThe NOVA Parks Outdoor Kids Fund awards grants to elementary schools, park and recreation departments, and nonprofits in Northern Virginia to support outdoor teambuilding, nature education and science education at Hemlock Overlook Regional Park in Clifton, VA and other suitable sites in Northern Virginia, in an effort to help children engage with nature in meaningful ways.
Needs based grants from the Fund may also be awarded to children to help them enjoy summer camp programs that are offered by the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority. Grants may also be awarded to summer camp providers in Northern Virginia to help offset the costs of taking the camp to one of NOVA Parks’ water parks. These efforts are designed to encourage children to be active outdoors, benefitting them physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Thank you for your support.
