Cost & Registration:

Day camps for ages 6-12 are $275-$345 depending on your location, with discounts for early registration. To reserve your spot and lock in the earliest registration discount, make a $75 minimum deposit and your balance will be due upon arrival.

Standard Discounts: You will receive cumulative discounts of $5 per additional week you attend this summer, $5 off per additional family member attending this summer, $5 off for successfully referring other families who register campers this summer, and once you’ve attended a program, $5 per online review you do for us on a searchable site like google and yelp, no matter how positive. Please note that the Better Business Bureau and other sites forbid any incentive for writing reviews so we can’t give credits for those, but still appreciate it!

Scholarships for day camps in 2017 are only available the weeks of June 26-30 in Puyallup and July 24-28 at Lake Sammamish when children can attend the Wilderness Skills Sampler, and all ages can attend our affordable family classes which follow the exact same schedule as the sampler day camp. Overhead is too high during other day camps weeks/locations. If interested in June 26-30 or July 24-28, be sure to apply for merit scholarships or financial aid well before the June 5th deadline because spaces often fill by late spring.
