The Tony Colasardo Scholarship Fund provides full or partial scholarships for the many popular camps and recreation programs offered by the Parks and Recreation Department. 

Tony Colasardo was a long-time Recreation Commissioner who was a passionate advocate for inclusion and social equity and believed that every child regardless of income level, ability, race or gender should have access to the benefits of parks and recreation. 

These scholarships are intended to remove any financial impediment facing a family when deciding to participate in our many camps or programs.
