A note about camps: Only camps that provide children with quality art, music, drama, dance, heritage or cultural activities are eligible. For instance, a camp teaching children to sing and play guitar is eligible. Canoe trips and recreational camps that include some art or craft sessions or music and song around a campfire are not eligible as artistic and cultural activities are not their main purpose. Leadership camps, 4-H, Boy Scout, and bible camps are not eligible.

Any activity primarily based on fitness, sport, recreation, science or religion is generally not eligible.

The following activities are not eligible:
- Fitness and physical activity – Zumba, yoga, gymnastics, baton twirling, cheerleading, or sports.
- 4-H, Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, summer camps (except artistic and cultural camps)
- Lego-based activities and camps

- Fees for choir trips, band trips and school band fees
- Any language lessons not affiliated with the Saskatchewan Organization for Heritage Languages language schools.
- Activities that promote definable religious or political viewpoints
