Camp Fees

Camp fees are deeply discounted for adults and seniors registering and paying early (see chart). This helps you out financially and helps us get ready for camp. To reserve a space at camp, a $100 minimum deposit per adult must be sent postmarked or online registered by Friday, May 8.

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

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 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 Aziza at to confirm your early arrival permission. We welcome those ready to chip in and help us set up camp.

Daily Headcounts: Your arrival and departure day / time on your registration form helps us plan for headcounts at meals. Getting your registration form with fees paid by May 8 will allow us to save money in bulk food purchase, thereby keeping your fall camp fees affordable.

Loving Service (Karma Yoga) Requirements: Sign up when you check in for 2 or 3 camp tasks. For those who choose not to participate in this sacred communal opportunity, there is an additional fee of $30 per day or $100 for the whole camp, payable with registration form. Loving Service is Fun!
