    Tuition value

    • Our programs’ diversity and breadth are unequalled in California camps, and includes numerous programs unavailable anywhere else
    • Comparable camps charge significantly more, often several hundred – ask for the comparison charts and graphs.  ($450 for two-week sessions, on average:  range = $1000 more to on par, with nearly every other camp charging more, and offering less).
    • Many things included in our tuition are extra at other places – often adding $100 — $300 to the stated tuition.  This fact is not included in the above calculus.
    • As a non-profit, we don’t pay taxes, we receive donations, staff work for less, thousands of hours of labor are donated, and we receive grants.  These allow us to offer a high-quality program at a non-profit rate.  Indeed, were we a for-profit camp, we would be $1900 for a one-week session and $3600 for a two-week session.
    • Nearly all of our new programs are funded from camp-family donations  — ask about a program or facility you may wish to sponsor!
