Scholarships

We believe that everyone should have access to recreational activities, including those at the Aquatic Center, the Astoria Recreation Center, Port of Play, and Lil’ Sprouts Academy. If you need financial assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us or pick up an application at any of our facilities. You can also print out an application here or fill one out and submit it online below.

 

Help-a-Kid

Every kid should benefit from public recreation. Unfortunately, sometimes families cannot financially support extra-curricular activities. Can you help to provide a recreational experience that can benefit a child for life?

Your sponsorship dollars will directly allow a child to participate in any recreational opportunity that we offer. When you open your arms the benefits are endless! Call 503.325.7275 to Help-a-Kid.
