Early Enrollment Credit - $200 (per child)
Campers returning to camp in 2025 after attending a session in 2024 by the following deadlines will receive this credit. Their (first-time) siblings are also eligible.
2024 First Session Attendees - Enroll by July 29
2024 Full Summer or Second Session Attendees - Enroll by August 26

NEW Early Pay in Full Credit - $400 (per child)
Campers coming for the first time or returning to camp in 2025 with full balances (2025 Tuition only) paid by July 29 (2025 First Session enrollment) or August 26 (2025 Full Summer/Second Session enrollment) will receive this credit. Please note: the Early Pay in Full Credit cannot be combined with the Early Enrollment Credit (max discount in those cases is $400 per child). If a New Family (no returning campers) opts for Early Pay in Full Credit, we will provide the $400 (per child) PLUS the $200 (per child) credit.
