Registration and Pre-Camp Information

Tiered pricing is a way to provide the camp experience for more folks.  Basically, each family can choose the tier that fits their budget.

Tier I reflects the actual cost of camp, including food, supplies, insurance, utilities, facility maintenance, staff salaries and other expenses.

Tier II is our historically subsidized rate and does not reflect the full cost of running camp.

Tier III is a more heavily subsidized rate for those who need more assistance to attend a camp.

Please create a package that works for you and your family.  We know for some families this will include multiple campers and/or campers attending multiple sessions.  We also know some families need additional support for a camper to attend.

No matter what tier you choose, your child will get the same great camp experience. 

There is a great list of needed items in our parent’s guide that can be downloaded here: Parent’s Guide PDF

Camp is a great experience for many children. It is an opportunity to learn and grow in a safe and supportive environment.  Calvin Crest works hard to provide a camp experience for every child that wants one.  And there are ongoing costs associated with camp.  In general, we subsidize every camper by not charging the total actual cost of camp.  For some camper families, that automatic reduction is not sufficient.  We work with individual families to design a plan that works for their situation and budget.  Payment plans, a further reduction in fees or other options are all possibilities.  There is some paperwork involved in receiving financial aid.  Please also talk with someone at your local church.  Many churches assist youth with part of the camp expense.

In an effort to improve our ability to serve all campers, we have changed our pricing structure.  Instead of early bird discounts or a bring-a-friend discount, we have introduced Tiered Pricing, which allows our camper families to choose the level of pricing that matches their family budget.
