Tiered Pricing (NEW for 2018!)
We are proud to introduce our new tiered pricing system in an effort to keep camp accessible to all.  It is a challenge to put a price on the value of camp and the memories that camp provides; so we would like you to choose whichever price is appropriate for your family. This choice will NOT affect your camper's experience, or opportunities in our programs, and will be kept confidential. If your family is faced with the choice between paying a higher price, or attending more weeks of camp, we encourage your camper to attend more weeks of the summer and to have you select the lower Tier.

We ask families to use the honor system when selecting which fee is appropriate to your family.  If you require more assistance, please apply for Tier 4, our financial assistance program.
