Sliding Fee Scale

Sliding Fee Scale 2024

A sliding fee scale may be used to reduce the amount paid for summer camps. The scale ranges from 10-100% and is based on income, number of members per household, and special circumstances affecting the applicant’s ability to pay. Applications are available online or an appointment can be made in person to pick up an application at the Administration Building located at 400 Cleveland Street by calling (919) 560-4355. If approved, the reduced fee is valid for one year.

Plan Ahead: if you are a new sliding fee scale registrant or your current application is expired or will expire soon, you must submit a new application by Friday, February 16, 2024, to ensure that it is processed and approved by the summer camp registration date.

If you need to check your sliding fee scale expiration date login to your account on our ActiveNet registration site. Under the "Payment and Order Management" section select "Scholarships List."

Special Services

DPR encourages the participation of all school-age children in its School-Age Care (SAC) Program. To provide quality services and activities to all its participants, children needing significant assistance with personal care (i.e. toileting), behavior management, support to participate in activities, constant eyes-on supervision, and/or hands-on support, or who have trouble communicating needs/wishes for more than 30% of the time may be required to bring a care provider (at no expense to DPR) to provide 1:1 support. DPR will assess each participant’s abilities and notify the parents/guardians if 1:1 support is required. DPR will reasonably accommodate participants needing such support. 

Please Note: 1:1 care providers must pass a background check prior to supporting a participant in the SAC program
