*Taxes and fees estimated
 
What do these fees go towards?
  • Camp cost
    • Camp Fee covers ALL costs of the following while at camp
        • Lodging
        • Meals
        • Activities
  • Travel to and from camp

  • Other Expenses Covered
    • Area Camp T-shirt
    • Cabin supplies

    • Event related items brought by leaders
Students will want to bring spending money for additional food to or from camp itself. There is a camp store where they may buy anything ranging from guitar picks, sweatshirts, and backpacks. There is also an awesome snack and espresso shop where they can spend money they bring.
For every 4 campers one leader attends camp with the campers and a small portion of camper fees go toward leader costs to allow our voluteer leaders taking time off work to attend camp with our middle school friends to build friendships.
We try to keep camp costs as low as possible and we have middle schooler go later in summer to allow more time to fundraise, as the airline ticket combined with a shorter camp week cause the ticket to cost more than camp itself.
​Fundraisers
We understand that paying for camp is not always an option for some families as it is a large expence. Campers are not expected to pay for camp but to fundraise for it. Campers who earn money for camp always seem to enjoy it more knowing they worked to get there. Each year we have had some students fundraise 100% of their camp fees at our fundraisers. We do several different fundraisers and are always trying to add new creative ways to raise money for students and leaders to attend camp.
Fundraisers that we have found to be successful in the past include:
  • Car Washes
    • Sundays starting in April
  • Madison BBQ's
    • Once after Memorial Day
  • Mother's Day Pick-A-Pie
  • Business Proceeds
    • AJ's Burgers
  • Garage Sales
    • Saturdays in May and June
  • Event Boothes
Fundraisers we will be trying this year
  • Papa John Pizza
  • Stadium Seat Cushion Sales 
If you have an idea for a fundraiser be sure to contact Area Director Ashley Wardrop.
