Providing high quality and fun camping experiences to all young people regardless of the ability to pay established fees is very important to us. Our fees are established based the cost of what is needed to have highly qualified staff on duty, serve great meals, have terrific facilities and equipment available and give our campers the best possible experience. We know and understand that there may be circumstances or barriers that make attending camp difficult for some families without some sort of assistance. We do everything we can to help address any circumstances and eliminate any barriers by offering discounts, payment plans, hosting fundraisers and providing financial assistance to those who may need it. Please see details regarding our discounts and scholarship program below.
