2023 Fees

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

  • 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.

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