The minimum age to attend camp is 9 years old. Some sessions of camp are for 9-13 year olds and others are for 13-18 year olds. This year, Sessions 3 and 7 are the older/teen sessions, while the others are the younger sessions.

What does camp cost?

Camp is $550 and includes a healthy morning and afternoon snack and constantly filled coolers of iced water, but does NOT include lunch. You must bring a lunch with you each day along with your water bottle. A camp tee shirt, book, and foam training weapon are included in the cost.

What are the hours of the camp?

8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday – Friday.
Camp starts at 8:00 a.m. You may not drop your camper off before 7:45 a.m. We need all of our morning time to finish planning your camper’s day. Thank you for understanding. Camp ends at 5:00 p.m. If we don’t hear from you by 5:15 p.m., we’ll call you to get an ETA. If you arrive after 5:30 p.m. we’ll charge you $20 for every half-hour you are late, unless you call us before 5:15 p.m. to let us know you’ll be late.

My camper is new, could you place them with their sibling/close friend?

We can’t guarantee that they’ll be in the same group. What we can say is, no matter what group they go into they’ll get to spend much of their day with their friends/family.

Can I change the group/goddess/god cabin I'm in?

No. Once you are placed that’s it. We do our best to put your camper where they want to go, but we are limited by space requirements and therefore don’t shift those assignments.

Are all staff required to have a criminal background checks? Are they CPR/First Aid trained?

Our camp staff are all required to have criminal & sexual misconduct background checks AND current CPR/First Aid certifications. We also hold consent and sexual harassment training every year. All paperwork, including resumes, references and training certifications are kept at camp and on file.

What do we do if my child has food allergies?

It depends on the type and severity of the food allergy. We can accommodate most allergies. Be sure to fill out this section on the medical forms to make us aware of your needs.

Do you have payment plans?

Do you offer scholarships or discounts?

We do offer partial and full scholarships to attend camp. Information and the application can be found here: https://forms.gle/WMdG9KxmUMJVJrN58. Any questions can be directed to the Program Director at [email protected]

Can I switch sessions?
