Hi! The English site is only a beta for now and still has many errors (especially in names and locations).
We are working hard to fix them and making more content available than ever before so expect constant updates.
The Recreation Card is a grant system for the recreation of children and adolescents ages 6-18 with legal residence in Reykjavik. The grant amounts to 50,000 kr. a year, and you can use it to pay off some of your child's attendance and exercise fees.
If your child reaches the age of six during the year, the child is eligible for a grant from January 1 of that year and until the year the child turns 18. Individuals who are 18 years of age are required to register on their own in order to allocate their grant.
The aim is for all children and young people in Reykjavik ages 6-18 to be able to participate in recreational activities regardless of their economic and social circumstances. The Recreation Card is intended to increase equality in society and diversity in the practice of sports, arts, and leisure activities.
