Each session runs Saturday afternoon to Saturday morning.
Campers may come for one week, several weeks in a row, or multiple inconsecutive weeks as you wish
Half Summer Session
Come for 4 weeks and get a discount of $400. Additional weeks are discounted $100 each.
Full Summer Session
An 8 week stay at camp is a full summer, even though we do have 10 weeks of camp. Get $1000 off for coming 8 weeks. If you desire, you could stay longer and get another $125 off each week, BUT that is a long time for campers to be away from home. We recommend stopping at 8 weeks even for independent children or experienced campers.
Early Season Pricing
The first two sessions of the summer are discounted heavily due to seasonal demand. Some schools are still in session and many families choose vacation right after the spring semester. These sessions have the same activity options as regularly priced sessions. The lake is usually a degree or two lower than later, and the air temperature may be lower too, but still pleasant. The overall enrollment is sometimes slightly lower, but that is hard to predict and it is sometimes full. We have a full staff who are full of energy in the early season.
The early season prices cannot be applied to any other weeks. If you sign up for the early weeks but need to switch later, we cannot apply the discount to the later weeks. If we need to cancel the early week as we did in 2020 for covid, we would allow campers to switch sessions without paying the regular tuition.
Other Payment & Discount Questions
We do not offer any scholarships. We strive to offer the best camp we can at a reasonable price. We have many old buildings and a large property requiring a lot of maintenance work; we try to attract a high quality staff and compensate them for their hard work; we provide plenty of wholesome food. The first two sessions are heavily discounted, and that is the best we can do for scholarships or discounts. The discount cannot be applied to other weeks.
Is there late season pricing for the last week? No. We typically have less demand for the last session, but it is a regularly priced week. All the activity options remain the same as regular weeks. We have fewer programs that week (Athena, Dodgeball, Excalibur), so it usually ends up with extra spaces, and we are fine with that. We begin packing up a few items that do not interfere with the camp activities, such as the pole vault mats because there is no pole vault camp. It gets a little colder at night and a little darker sooner in the evening.

Refunds before June 1st
Before June 1st we can refund you in two ways: 100% as tuition credit for the next year OR all but $25 returned to you by your original method of payment.
Refunds up until 10 days before your session starts
Up until 10 days before the start of your session, we can refund you in two ways: all but $25 as tuition credit OR all but $50 returned to your original method of payment.
For precision in case it is needed, 10 days before your session will be defined as the start date on the calendar minus 10. Since check in starts at 3pm, your request must be submitted to our email by 3pm. All our sessions start on Saturday, so two Wednesdays before by 3pm is the deadline. For example, if your session is June 19, then the deadline to request your refund is Wednesday, June 9 at 3:00pm.
Refunds in the final 10 days before your session
We can give you all but $50 as tuition credit if you need to cancel in the last 10 days before the session starts. At this point, we are unlikely to fill the space we held for you, even off the waiting lis, so we cannot offer cash back. We make cabin assignments and order food based on registrations 10 days out.
Deposit & Balance Due Dates
A deposit of $150 per camper is required
to hold a space in camp. Registration is not complete
until payment is received.
The balance of tuition is due June 1st.
You may ask for an extension if your program is more than a month away. You may receive emails in
the meantime reminding you to pay. Sometimes we have office workers check on payments and they don't find the email asking for the extension. If so, please kindly reply to those emails to let him know that you received an extension.
There is no fee for switching weeks. There must be space in the new week to accommodate a switch.
In the event of a need to cancel, we will try to work with you to transfer to a different week with availability.
If you need to cancel and can find a replacement,
you may request that we substitute the new camper in for
the one originally registered.
This avoids any loss even of administrative fee, but you are responsible
for dealing with the exchange of money to transfer the spot.
This transfer only works if we have space for the new camper in the correct age & gender cabin.
Discounts are applied after you register because of the technical limitation that we can only apply a discount to a camper in the system. You may defer payment and email us to apply your referral discount so that you can pay the right amount. If you overpay because of a discount, simply email and we can refund your payment partially to achieve the correct balance.
