As always, tuition for ORC4G follows a pay-what-you-can model and no camper will be turned away for financial reasons. Our aim is to make camp accessible to anyone who wants to participate. However, we are also a volunteer-run community organization with limited resources that does not profit from our activities. In fact, we are able to run camp mostly in thanks to the generosity of our donors and sponsors, as well as the support of our community.
Factoring in the in-kind donations we rely on to operate our camp, the remaining cost per camper is approximately $200 for the weekend. We ask that those who can afford to cover the full cost please do so. As mentioned, we also recognize that this isn’t possible for everyone and are pleased to offer an honour-based sliding scale system built on need - it is up you and your family to decide how much you can afford to contribute.
Please be honest in your assessment of your own resources, as we do not require any documentation to prove your financial situation. Our aim is to make camp accessible to anyone who wants to participate. If possible, upon acceptance we ask that every family contribute a minimum donation of $25 towards their camper’s tuition to ensure that their spot will be held.
Here is a suggested guideline for assessing your contribution to tuition:Household income less than $20,000 – $25 donation or pay what you canHousehold income less than $40,000 – $25 donation + pay what you can Household income over $40,000 – pay full fee or pay what you canHousehold income over $80,000 – pay full fee unless extenuating circumstances
If your camper appreciates her experience at this year’s camp, we encourage you to make a donation to ORC4G at our showcase event on Sunday, November 6th. We will have donation jars by the door and can accept cash or cheques made out to “Ottawa Rock Camp for Girls”. Alternatively, you can donate on our website using a credit card or PayPal through the “Donate” link or directly at https://www.paypal.me/ORC4G .
Please indicate your first and second instrument choice in the table below. No experience is necessary! There will be space for 5 drummers, 5 bassists, 8 guitarists and 2 keyboardists (total campers = 20). We will do our best to give you your first choice but unfortunately there are no guarantees.
