What is expected of campers while attending camp?

We have two rules in camp. Respect and Responsibility.  We cover the rules and whats is expected day one of each camp.

We have a zero tolerance policy for aggressive behavior and language.  This means if a child is potentially a danger to themselves or others the camp instructor will call a parent or guardian to pick them up immediately.    

For minor behavioral situations the camp instructor will ask the campers to write a redirect report or draw a picture to explain the situation.  The camper will present their report to their parent or guardian at the end of the day to discuss how the camper can work to improve the next day.

 

How much is each week of camp?

The pricing structure is determined by the location.  Camp tuition can range from $190 to $250 per week.

There are generally no sibling discounts or bulk pricing, except in disadvantaged communities and when the cost of running is offset by a community or HOA.

There are scholarships available to anyone who applies.  There are no restrictions but we select our scholarship recipients based on financial need, date of submission, and campers level of interest in the specific themes.
