We have received several questions regarding Kids on Campus funding and how it affects summer camp applications. While we aim to accommodate all children, it's not always possible. Kids on Campus, an outreach program of Ohio University's College of Health Sciences and Professions, is 100% funded through grants and donations, not through the Ohio University budget. Our funding includes partnerships with local schools for 21st Century Community Learning Center grants, which are competitive and based on specific school eligibility criteria, such as the percentage of students qualifying for free and reduced lunch. These grants require a school-community organization partnership, like ours, to develop and submit proposals. 

Summer camp admission primarily depends on whether a partner school has available funding. Occasionally, we can admit a small number of students from schools without current funding, based on commitments to future grants or private donations. We strive to offer opportunities to students from various schools each year. While a school's decision not to partner on a grant is respected, we continue to engage with local districts annually to explore potential partnerships. For specific inquiries about a school's decision on whether to partner with us to apply for funding, please contact the school administration
