Quality recreational programs for kids are essential to the health and safety of our community.  Organized, outdoor play provides an alternative to gangs, drugs and violence, and promotes physical activity, leadership and teamwork. The Fit to Play Scholarship fund, a program of The Parks Foundation of Miami-Dade, was created to preserve recreational programs that keep kids healthy, off the streets, engaged and safe.

 

$5 a day allows a child to attend one of Miami-Dade Parks after-school programs

$10 a day allows a child to attend one of Miami-Dade Parks summer camp programs

 

Did you know?

 

·       A juvenile in jail costs taxpayers $117 per day.  Preventative recreation programs in Miami-Dade cost as little as $5 per day. 

 

·      Miami-Dade students trail the nation in physical activity.   Miami-Dade Parks youth recreational programming teaches kids ages 6-14 healthy eating habits and keeps them physically active.

 

·      At least 7 million children go to an empty house after school.  Miami-Dade after-school and summer camp programs provide safe, structured activities free from crime, drugs and gang-related activities.

 

·       Children in low-income neighborhoods are most at risk when funding is threatened.  Experience has proven that even the slightest increase in program fees results in a high drop-out rate.
