EligibilityHow to Qualify for DACP
The Doli Atamian Campership Program (DACP) provides opportunities for summer camp, summer school, or other summer experiences to income eligible families living in Acton and Boxborough. In order to apply for a scholarship, you must be living in either Acton or Boxborough and must meet at least one of the following criteria: 1) you are a client of Acton or Boxborough Housing Authority, 2) your child/children receive free or reduced lunch at school, or 3) if your family meets the Income-Eligible Guidelines below.
The DACP will pay up to $300 per child and scholarships are restricted to children of at least 3 years old through high school students. Please note that DACP does not fund daycare. If your child receives other funding for summer activities or you do not have a demonstrated need for funding you may not qualify. Our sources of funding are local businesses, service organizations, camps, churches and individual donations. Campership requests will be filled on a first-come first-serve basis, depending on the amount of funds raised.
