Camp Fees

Age Registration Fee
Adult: 31-64 $320
Senior: 65+ $280
YA: 20-30 $200
Teen: 13-19 $140
Child: 5-12 $50

No fees for children under 5. They may not be assigned a bunk bed if camp is well attended.

Fees are the same for camper walk-ins without prior registration. There is no daily rate.


Because of the COVID testing process upon arrival to Fall Camp and the Retreat emphasis of our continuing theme of Remembrance, once you check in, you will not be able to leave and re-enter the camp. There will be no Town Runner, so pack carefully.

EVERYONE, including Teachers and Staff, needs to send in a registration form or register online! We use it as THE document for each camper, including cabin assignments, and it helps us serve you.

Non-Refundable Liability Insurance Premium Surcharge $10 for All: Liability insurance premium costs keep rising. All campers except Guest Teachers and children under 5 pay an additional $10.

Please note that Thursday arrival is $50 unless you are a teacher or staff member (those with scholarships) or with prior approval by the camp manager. If you are not on staff, please email Safia at to confirm your early arrival permission. We welcome those ready to chip in and help us set up camp.

Affordability Policy for Families with Children: Kids Camp Half-Scholarships for Parents
Our community offers scholarship programs for parents who bring children under age 13:

  • For families with children under 5, one parent/guardian per child can attend camp at one half of the normal registration fee and have no assigned staff position other than taking care of their children.
  • Parents or guardians of children age 5 or older can apply for a half scholarship to either: 1) serve on staff at Kids Camp (contact Kids Camp co-director Lori Thweatt at … or 2) serve on staff elsewhere in the camp (contact Camp Manager Safia Gray at or 816-769-6247).

Daily Headcounts: Your arrival and departure day / time on your registration form helps us plan for headcounts at meals.

Loving Service (Karma Yoga) Requirements: Sign up when you check in for camp tasks. For those who choose not to participate in this sacred communal opportunity, there is an additional fee of $100, payable with registration form. Loving Service/Karma Yoga is essential to make camp happen!
