Additional discounts include $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 $5 off every other camp for all alumni returning from prior years.
To reserve your spot for weeks still available, make a $100 deposit per camper/week and your balance will be due upon arrival. The only additional expenses you may incur for camp are that you will need to pack a lunch and snacks every day, add extended care if desired, and of course all campers need health insurance.

Scholarships are available if you apply for financial aid before spaces fill, usually by late spring.
