Families are able to apply for financial aid to purchase reduced price days - roughly half the cost of our regular Day Passes. The number of financial aid recipients is limited at each camp location. We award the financial aid to qualifying families based on verification of current income, as well as 2017 income and family size. The income levels necessary for qualification are different by state, due to the variance in cost of living and housing.
Financial Aid Day Passes work similarly to our regular Day Passes. You may buy any number of Financial Aid Day Passes, use them anytime and at summer’s end we’ll refund you any unused passes. The only big difference is that you must attend the location which we grant the financial aid for. Financial Aid Day Passes are awarded for use this summer only, are not transferable and cannot be sold.
In the past our Financial Aid program has not included a Membership option. However, we recognize that for Financial Aid recipients even that reduced daily rate can add up if you attend often. We’d like to encourage more usage given the benefits that come from a full-summer camp experience, so new this year we've introduced a Financial Aid Membership, in addition to our Financial Aid day pass option.
You can attend as much as you're like on the Financial Aid Membership, and it will be beneficial for those who plan to use 35 days of camp or more. To register for the Financial Aid Membership, families will need to purchase and use 35 Financial Aid Passes (per child). Once the 35th day has been used they will need to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to request that the remainder of the summer be added at no additional charge. And if you use less than 35 days, we'll calculate what you would have spent on the daily Financial Aid rate and refund you the difference.
We take applications and grant financial aid on a first come first serve basis until we run out at each of the respective camp locations. Please be aware that the number of financial aid grants per site differ dramatically based on availability, are limited to 2018 and acceptance into the 2018 program does not guarantee future acceptance.
