We further believe that every child should have an opportunity to attend camp. It is our philosophy that no camper should be refused access to camp because of financial circumstances. With your help we can give even more children the gift of camp! A week of Day Camp is $275 and a week of Overnight Camp is $375. We also host weekend camps throughout the school year and those cost $90 per person. We have many families who need assistance in order to send their children to camp and so your help is greatly appreciated.
