We strive to keep camp fees as low as possible, offering “camperships” for low-income families. The fees above reflect our camp fees subsidized by generous donors who would like to make camping an experience for all.
We estimate our sustainable camp fee, without donor support, to be $545. If you are able to pay this amount, then another child will benefit from your support. Thank you.
