Healthy, fun activities for kids in the Kingdom!
NEKYS Summer Central Scholarship Program distributes scholarships to local families so their children can participate in healthy, fun, supervised summer activities. The Northeast Kingdom, surrounding region and beyond hosts a wide variety of recreation and skill-building summer programs. For many local families it is a struggle to engage their children in extra-curricular activities: limited public transportation, few financial resources, domestic issues and parent work schedules leave many children with a summer vacation of long, lonely days full of boredom and restlessness.
Through the scholarship program, we assist as many income eligible families as we can. We are working to turn endless summer days, where young people may engage in dangerous, risky behaviors, into lively and rewarding summer fun.
2017 Summer Central Calendars are complete and for sale!!! Each Calendar is only $10. All proceeds will go directly to helping send our local youth to summer camps. NEKYS will draw a winner for a prize everyday in June.
