Special medical needs? We will have a health supervisor at camp with an RN or higher level of training. The health supervisor is prepared to handle medical conditions treatable with oral, topical or inhalable medications which have been under good control medically for at least a month. We can sometimes accommodate a child with medication requiring routine injections – but we evaluate that on a case by case basis. If this is you, please contact the camp registrar who can put you in touch with our medical staff.
Paying for Camp
We recognize that families have different abilities to pay, and therefore offer 3 price tiers. Tier 3 represents the actual cost of camp. Tiers 1 and 2 are subsidized by supporters.
Upon registration, you will be able to select the price that is right for your family:
- Tier 1: $553
- Tier 2: $603
- Tier 3: $653
All children receive the same camp experience, and registration includes food, program expenses, lodging, and more.
Thanks to the generous support of the freethought community, and the Helen Kagin Memorial Fund, financial aid may be available for families that cannot afford the Tier 1 pricing.
Applications are evaluated on a first come, first served basis, while funds remain. To support our campership program, please click here.
Upon registration, we offer multiple options to help you pay for camp:
- Online Payment – We accept all major credit cards and Paypal.
- Send a Check – We will hold your reservation for 10 days.
We even a layaway option! Provide a $100 deposit upon registration (via check or securely online), and pay the rest each month through June (available through June 1).
And if you want to enlist the help of your friends and family, we offer fundraising pages! We will set up a personalized webpage for you to raise money for camp. A $100 deposit is required to hold your reservation (available through June 1).
All registration payments are due in full by June 1, except for those on our layaway payment plan or if a special extension has been offered.
We believe that camp cancellation policies should be simple and fair, with a little room to make judgment calls when special occasions arise.
To that end, we will offer a complete refund to any registration cancelled* prior to June 14 at 11:59 PM.
On June 15th, we must submit our estimated headcount for food and confirm a number of other costly items. Cancellations* between June 15 and June 30 at 11:59 PM will receive a refund minus the $100 deposit.
As we submit our final headcounts on July 1, any cancellations made on or beyond this date will not be subject to a refund. That being said, our board of directors will review any special scenarios and is willing to make exceptions when appropriate.
* Cancellations must be made via email to west@CampQuest.org.
