Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the cost of camp?

A: The youth camp costs $100. Payment is due in full at the time of registration unless you are filling out a scholarship application. To do this, please select the Youth Camp Scholarship option when registering.

There are a limited number of scholarships available. For those wishing to apply for a scholarship, a $20 deposit is required to hold your spot in camp. If you are granted a scholarship two more payments will be due: $20 in June and $10 in July prior to the start of camp, for a total of $50. The remaining $50 will be covered by the scholarship.

In the event that you are not granted a scholarship, your $20 deposit will be refunded.
