Financial Aid through Tiered Pricing
Thanks for taking the initiative to get your kid to camp. We sincerely hope the aid we can offer is enough to help make it possible for your child to attend.
The below form shows whether or not you qualify for Tier I or II. You can prove your qualification by sending in two forms. The first is proof that your income is below the guideline, and the second is the SFSP form (SFSP form is only required for Summer sessions)
You can send in one of these two forms:
- Send us proof of your free or reduced lunch status. Can just be a letter from your child’s school saying you qualify.
- OR… Send us your prior year tax return (1040) to demonstrate your income is below the guideline.
- The SFSP form helps us get money back for the meals we serve during the summer, which ultimately helps us make these scholarship rates possible.
- While it contains much of the same information that you used to qualify for Free/Reduced lunches the government requires that it is filled out separately. Sorry!
In addition to proof of qualification, we need you to actually sign up for camp!

Guidance for Social Service Agencies, Churches, and Other 3rd Party Payers
Please remember that these rates are heavily subsidized. We work hard to raise money for campers who can’t pay. You can help! If you have a friend, family member, church, community organization or someone else who can help pay, please take a higher tier and get their help. OR, they can make a donation straight to the camp. If you can get even a little help from another source, we’ll be able to help more kids get here! Also, you could volunteer time. During programs there is much to do and in the off seasons we need help with cleaning, maintenance, print and digital design. If you have a skill we can probably use it! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to give time.
If the party paying for camp is an organisation, they should assume a minimum of tier III. As tier IV is our cost, we invite everyone to pay that as their financial ability allows. If your organisation cannot afford tier III, yet would like to send a child, please contact us regarding a special arrangement.
