Summer Camps

Tiered Pricing

The pricing model of our camps has changed this year – we have introduced a tiered pricing system! There are three levels of pricing from which to choose for each camp session, that are designed to give the opportunity for as many youth to participate in our overnight camps as possible.

List Discount: The lowest tier of our pricing is for those who need a helping hand. If this discount is not enough to bridge the gap between what your family can afford and the cost of camp, we also offer camperships of up to 80% off the list price. For more information contact program@gracefieldcamp.ca. Your own church may also have campership funds available.

List Price: This tier is the regular price for the camp.

List Plus: This tier is for those who want to help other families. With this tier you are paying list price, plus making a tax receipt-able donation of $50 to our campership fund to help more kids enjoy time at camp. (LIT List + would have a tax receipt-able donation of $105)

Early Bird Prices: A 10% discount is in effect for all three pricing levels until March 31, 2022. This discount will be applied automatically, so no need to do anything other than completing the registration before the deadline.

Early Bird rate available until 11:59 pm March 31, 2022.
