    Answer this after "Registrant is:" and before "Payment Options"

    Adult tuition sliding scale:
    Base — We are proud to offer discounted tuition (below actual cost of camp) to those with limited income. The remaining costs of your stay at camp are covered thanks to our “Supporter” campers and fundraising efforts.
    General — This level reflects all the costs of your stay at camp. By paying this tuition, you cover our operating costs.
    Supporter — This level covers the cost of your stay at camp and pays it forward for one camper attending at the Base tuition. Thank you for spreading the kefi! You will receive a receipt for the tax-deductible donation portion of your payment. 

    Answer this after the prior two questions.


    Please note that all children MUST be housed with their parents or guardians.  Children under 18 years of age must provide additional forms (Parent/Guardian Form and/or Temporary Guardian Form). Link to these forms from the sidebar on this page.

    If you desire greater privacy, you may consider bringing a tent.  Fees for tenting are the same as for cabins. Mendocino cabins are 4-person, and it is likely that all spaces will be filled. The central cabin section at Mendocino is generally reserved for staff.
