Send Your Child to Camp

NOAA BIG Send Your Child to Camp

Tuition assistance is available for all NOAA employees through the NOAA Chapter of Blacks In Government’s Send Your Child to Camp (SYCC) Program. Eligible NOAA employees’ immediate family members will only include either a daughter or a son between the ages of 8 to 12 who have not participated in the program for the past two consecutive years. Children turning 13 years of age before May 21, 2012 are not eligible. Tuition assistance is limited and will be provided to one NOAA employee’s child per family for one week of camp up to a maximum of $100.00. Tuition checks will only be disbursed to the parent. Checks will be made payable to the camp only.

Applications will be accepted for children who are registered and will be attending camp prior to July 1, 2012. Children, who start camp after July 1, 2012, are not eligible. For those who have pre-paid and still wish to receive financial assistance, the camp must be able to provide you with a reimbursement check.
