Youth Cabin Assistants

Youth aged 16 and 17 may attend camp as Cabin Assistants at some of our Elementary Camps. This is a camping experience intended to help develop leadership skills. Cost is $175.

The True Cost of Camp and our Tiered Pricing

The conference has instituted a voluntary personal pricing program. For most camps, you will find three different tiered rate prices, two of which are subsidized by scholarships and donations and a third which is the actual cost of camp. The pricing option a family chooses remains confidential and in no way influences the experience their children receive. Tiered pricing offers the opportunity for families to take an active role in supporting the true cost of their child’s camp experience.
