The New Hampshire Department of Education has awarded more than $1 million to families of disabled and financially disadvantaged children so they can attend summer camps, officials announced Friday.
Nearly 1,700 children will attend 96 different camps throughout the state under the ReKINDling Curiosity program.
The program has been in effect since 2021 and uses federal COVID-19 relief funds.
Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut called the $1 million mark a fantastic milestone for the program.
“Its growth is testament to the fun and engaging recreational camps that are stationed throughout the state allowing children to unplug, play outside and gain independence,” Edelblut said in a statement.
Money is still available for families.
