The Youth Scholarship program is made possible by the generous donations from corporate partners. We’d like to offer more kids the opportunity to play with the Parks – and encourage more corporations to get involved! Just call Sarah @260-427-6024 if you would like your company to participate. 

To register for a class (excluding Zoo classes/programs) and receive one of the limited number of scholarships, please review the following:

To Qualify:

  1. The participant must be age 18 or younger.

  2. The participant must provide proof of income eligibility. Acceptable forms of proof are limited to:

A signed letter from the child's school stating that (s)he qualifies for the free school lunch program and free textbooks. The letter must be issued within the current school year (August through June) and should contain the child's home address. A photo copy of the letter will be considered sufficient proof.

In the case of a pre-school child, a copy of the above specified letter identifying the applicant's sibling as eligible will serve as proof.

If a letter from the school is not available, a copy of the applicant family's most recent U.S. Internal Revenue Service Tax Return form shall qualify as proof.

   3.The participant may register for one activity (a class or one week of camp)
      up to $50 per calendar year.

   4. The scholarship may be used for registration fees only.        
       The scholarship can not be used for Zoo Camps or Zoo programs.
