Because flexibility is highly valued by many patrons, our outdoor camps are billed as nine distinct camp sessions. This allows patrons to select and pay for only the desired weeks of camp, rather than all nine or ten. However, in this payment structure, a recurring payment plan is not an option, as it would require patrons to commit to all nine available camp weeks. Because our camp enrollments fill quickly, patrons pay for all registered sessions in advance to ensure their spot is reserved for each purchased week.
