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.
