Why do I have to pay to come to camp to volunteer?This is a question we get asked a lot. Here's what we can tell you:
Financial assistance is readily available to all who need it. Everyone who asks for a scholarship gets one, no questions asked.
Our campers pay to come to camp, and we REALLY believe that our staff gets just as much out of this experience a our campers do. It doesn’t seem fair that the campers would pay and the staff would come for free.
Our staff is usually better able to pay than our campers are, because living with a disability often means living in poverty. Sharing the costs between staff and campers helps us make camp possible for everyone.
No one is turned away from camp because of inability to pay, but scholarship funds are limited. We ask that staff begin by asking their church or community to sponsor their camp fees; if this isn't possible we can help figure out a way to help you come to camp.
