Camp Fees

Welcome to the fees page, where you will find what it takes to keep our doors open. For the first time since we began in 2006, we are implementing a noticeable price increase. For a full-time student, that will total up to about a $50 increase. We understand that this may be painful for you, and are sorry for that. But we believe that keeping our doors open will ultimately serve you better.

This year we also have changed our application provider. This will result in a considerably smoother application process for you, and much improved reporting for us. It does have limitations, however; we are required to charge you for materials and lodging when you apply. Most students are still able to wait to pay tuition until later. You will find details below.
