2023 Fees

Fees include tuition, food, use of facility, all evening parties and special events. The price is the same for those who choose to tent as it is for those who stay in a cabin.

We have recently introduced a sliding-scale tuition for adult campers:

  • Subsidized — We are happy 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 “Pay-It-Forward” campers and fundraising efforts.
  • Full — This level reflects all the costs of your stay at camp. By paying this tuition, you cover our operating costs.
  • Pay-It-Forward — This level covers the cost of your stay at camp and pays it forward for one camper attending at the Subsidized tuition. Thank you for spreading the kefi! You will receive a receipt for the tax-deductible donation portion of your payment.

Cancellations and refunds:

  • If you cancel your registration, you may either have the refundable portion of your tuition returned to you, or you may donate your tuition to the EEFC.

For part-time and/or non-adult campers, the nonrefundable amount of your tuition will be prorated based on the number of days you originally registered for.

In the event of cancellations, registrants on the waiting list will be offered slots in order of receipt and appropriate housing availability.
