How Much Does Camp Cost?
Sliding Scale Price Structure
Hosmer Point is committed to keeping camp accessible to all families, regardless of income. We use an honor-system income-based sliding scale for our camp tuition, with families who pay more than the true cost of camp helping to offset those families who pay less. We ask that every family contribute what they can to keep Hosmer Point running sustainably so we can continue making camp possible for everyone. Contributions above the true cost of camp are considered tax deductible donations to our non-profit (501c3) parent organization, Concrete Foundation, Inc.
Camp Tuition = Hosmer Point Values In Action
We believe that families will use the values of Generosity, Kindness, and Cooperation we teach at camp as they choose how much to pay. At Hosmer Point we live by our values of Trust and Respect as we accept camp applications on the honor system, and Unity as we work together to make camp possible for everyone.
What Should I Pay?
We simply ask that each family keep our camp values of Generosity, Trust, and Kindness - and our goal of getting everyone to camp -in mind as they contribute what they can. We have provided an income guide in the chart below, but we understand that every family has a different situation and income is not always the best indicator of how much you can afford. You are not required to pay in the bracket that matches your income.
Spaces for campers paying less than the True Cost of Camp ($1000 for one week, $2200 for two weeks) are limited. These spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If spaces are no longer available in the bracket you've chosen, your camper will be placed on a wait list. Families paying more than the True Cost of Camp will expand our scholarship fund, creating additional spaces for wait listed campers paying in the two lower brackets.
You will have an opportunity to choose an amount from one of the brackets below when you register for camp.
I can't pay the minimum amounts. What should I do?
Please give us a call. If there are adequate funds available, we will do our best to get your child to camp!
Are there other ways to get help paying for camp?
Many churches, schools, community groups, and clubs offer scholarships for campers. Often school guidance counselors can give advice about where to find other help paying for camp. Hosmer Point is happy to work with the Department of Children and Families and other social service agencies to make camp a possibility.
