Deposit, Fees, & Payment Plans
Fees include the full camp program, lodging and food. All fee balances must be paid two weeks before the Session begins. After registration you may pay the tuition in full or you may enroll in a four, six, or seven week payment plan. A deposit of $200 per session is required upon registration (this deposit counts toward your tuition, it's not a separate fee).
As we are a small camp and a small community, we rely carefully on the budget that our tuition provides us. While deposits are always non-refundable, tuition fees paid are refundable in the event that we are able to fill your camper's spot. We will do our best in all cases to find new campers, but regrettably cannot guarantee that we will in all cases. Additionally, we will not offer a refund of any amount if your camper drops a spot within 7 calendar days of a session.
Pick-Up and Drop Off Times
Please arrive between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm on the first day of camp. If you arrive earlier than 2:00 pm, there are many things to see and do in Grass Valley and Nevada City, but camp will not be open for registration until 2:00 pm. If you are delayed, please call us to let us know if you may arrive later than 4:00pm.
Please plan to pick up your child by 11am . We encourage you to come as early as 9am to join us for morning songs on the last day of camp, always a very beautiful and fun time.
A Bay-Area shuttle is provided at the beginning and end of every session.
- Register by Valentines Day to show your camp love and get a $50 discount per child.
- Returning Campers: bring a friend who hasn't been to camp before, and get $50 off both of your tuitions! Just let us know by emailing
after both of you have paid the deposit and we will send you both a promo code before you pay tuition.
- Families registering more than one camper get $50 off per child.
Work trades are a fun way to make camp more affordable. In exchange for a week of helping with the work of camp, you will receive room and board and $350 toward one child's tuition at camp. The work is approximately 6 hours a day, 5 days a week. Work trades are most essential in the kitchen, helping cook meals, but could potentially be or include maintenance or leading activities in an area of your expertise. While not working, enjoy reading, playing music, and walking to the river (a 3 mile hike from our campus). Please contact us at
if you are interested in doing a work-trade this summer. It is possible to bring children too young to attend camp with you, if you are doing a work-trade!
Check out our Financial Aid page for more information on camperships. We do everything we can to make camp possible for all, regardless of financial limitations. If your child wants to attend camp and you are unable to afford the full price of tuition, please contact us and we will work with you to make sure they can come. Please email
and we will be happy to work with you! The deadline for financial aid requests is May 1. Requests made after this deadline will still be considered if funds are available.
