Please read the short article below to understand how our pricing works for summer camps.
We are excited for another incredible summer camp season!
As you prepare for an incredible summer adventure, we wanted to take some time to share some insight into how we price a week of summer camp. Preparing for summer camp takes an incredible amount of time and financial resources. We understand that this can make summer camp expensive to attend. That is why we have always subsidized our summer camp programs. What you see as a regular cost of camp has already been subsidized 40%-60%.
Each of our camps have different costs but on average a week of camp costs us about $800 per week. As a nonprofit charity it is our mission to have as many children come to camp as possible so we work to keep the price accessible for all. To allow everyone to attend our summer camp programs we run fundraisers and other community operations. Some can afford to pay the entire cost of a week at camp and by doing so will help others that can not afford the full price. The three different levels of subsidy are listed below:
- 0% subsidy – this price represents the full cost of a camper and no fundraising is necessary. Week long overnight camps cost $710-900/week
- 25% subsidy – This price accounts for 75% of the actual cost of camp. Week long overnight camps cost $533-615/week. To use this code type in the code 25% at checkout
- 40% subsidy – This price accounts for 60% of the actual cost of camp. Week long overnight camps cost $426-492/week. To use this code type in the code 40% at checkout
- Early Bird subsidy – An additional subsidy for persons that register before April 1st. To use this code type in the code EARLYcamp at checkout
At the end of registration, you will have the opportunity to add in a discount code to reduce the cost of camp by 25%-40%. The cost of camp is up to you. We also understand that, in some extreme cases, additional subsidies are needed. You can access our subsidy grant applications here. Grant applications close on April 15th. In addition Union Gospel Mission has subsidy programs available for persons that live in Metro Vancouver. For more information on UGM’s programs click here.
