Recreation Department Scholarship Program

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

In an effort to provide all Breckenridge residents access to our programs and facilities, individuals may apply for a scholarship to cover a part or the majority of a program fee or facility pass. All submitted applications are reviewed based on the expressed need of the individual applicant.

Scholarships are awarded seasonally for all youth programs. The committee reviews each scholarship and if approved, children receive up to 25 percent off all youth programs for each requested fall, winter, or summer semester. Scholarships are only applicable for that semester and must be completed for every new semester with updated information. Programs may fill and scholarship approval does not guarantee a spot in the program as these are filled first come first serve.
