Tier 4 – Is offered to families with demonstrated need who qualify for financial assistance through our Campership Program.

Registration Fees: The rates below include lodging, all meals for each day (meals available: Friday dinner – Monday Breakfast) and all activities except for water skiing which will be paid for at camp at $15 per run.
