    • A $25 late fee (per person) is applied to the final payment of each participant who does not complete the payment schedule on time.   

*Bunk Deposit Update: Bunk deposits play an important role in the preparation and planning of a successful summer camp operation.  From staffing, to having enough supplies on hand, to ordering food (including potential discounts for quantity orders) the ability to have a firmer idea of how many campers to expect is essential.  We do, however, understand the many financial obligations that families have this time of year.  To that end, we are extending the bunk deposit due date until Wednesday, March 1, 2023
