Camp Financial Page / Contribution Home
Here you can pay your tuition online, get information for paying by check, and find out more about how tuition works
If you have arrived here before filling out our enrollment paperwork for camp, please click the appropriate button below to enroll your child in camp.
The recommended tuition is how much it costs to run this camp. If folks pay less, the camp has to make up for that through other avenues. That said, we also strive to make this camp experience accessible to any child who could enjoy or benefit from this program. Each family doing everything it can to work towards a full tuition contribution helps us provide the best camp experience we're able for all the children who attend our camps. If you haven't already, you can read more about tuition considerations here
two timelines for camp contribution:
Pay your full tuition contribution within a week of your registration, or
Bring your full tuition amount to us the first day of camp.
--> any parents who are part of a split household and are planning on paying separately will need to nominate one person to be the combined payer. if families are in a situation where this truly feels unnavigable, contact us with a proposal for moving forward.

methods of payment
We appreciate you paying by check -- but you can also pay online below
Choosing to pay by check for deposit and tuition saves the camp approximately $20 per camper

If you'd like to pay online, please use the PayPal button below. You will receive a receipt of your payment via email within 48 hours. Thank you!
Here is how the payment site works:
When you get to the Paypal page, first input the amount you are paying in the left-hand box
Click 'Update' right below that amount. If it was successful, you will now see the amount listed.
If you have a Paypal account, log in to your account in the upper part of the right-hand box and proceed from there.
To instead make a contribution by credit card, either fill in the boxes underneath the words "Don't have a Paypal acccount?" or, if you don't see the form, click on the button that says "Don't have a Paypal account?" which should open a field that allows you to input your credit card information.
