New Pricing Tier Structure: To better meet the needs of our families, we have instituted a new voluntary 3 tier pricing structure. Choose the level most suitable for your family. Fees will not have any impact on the child’s experience while at camp and will be kept confidential.

  • Tier 1 is based on the full cost of the program. If you are able to pay this amount, please do so. Thank you.
  • Tier 2 is a partially subsidized rate that will enable families that just can’t afford the full cost of the camp program.
  • Tier 3 is a more heavily subsidized rate for families whose children would not be able to attend camp otherwise.
  • Tier 4 is a variable rate for families who show a demonstrated need that is greater than the subsidized rates. Aid, is donated by our funders and past alumni. More information and forms below.
