Sibling Discounts: A sibling discount is available to families that have more than one child attending camp. The first sibling to register will pay full price, then a $30 discount is available for each additional camper from the family. This discount is not available for Day Camp, Women’s Big R, Family Camp or Grandparent Camp.
Multiple Program Discounts: A camper who attends more than one program in a summer can receive a discount of $30 off the second program week. This discount is not available for Day Camp, Women’s Big R, Family Camp or Grandparent Camp.
Financial Assistance: Financial aid Camperships and payment plans are available. We will not turn anyone away from a week of camp for financial reasons. Contact our office or click here for more information.
Individual Deposit Refunds: The deposit is non-refundable and must be paid to guarantee your registration.
Group Reservation Deposit Refunds: Your deposit is non-refundable and must be paid to guarantee your reservation. On March 1st, deposits for up to four unused camper spaces, per program, will be credited to your group bill. The entire deposit for any unused spaces, beyond four, will be given to our Campership Fund. However, you may sign up a new, not previously registered, camper in any Cross Trails Ministry program and transfer the deposit to that camper.
Fee Refunds: Camp fees are due by May 1st. Campers who register after May 1st must pay in full or make financial arrangements with our office. Campers who cancel will not receive a fee refund without documentation of a medical or family emergency. Campers who leave camp early, for any reason, will not receive a refund.
Housing Policy: Campers may request to be housed with one friend of the same sex, in the same program. Grade levels within programs are also considered in determining appropriate housing and activity groups. Requests are not guaranteed.
Camper Behavior: We reserve the right to dismiss campers from any program if their behavior is disruptive or destructive to other individuals, the camp community or property.
Health and Special Needs: Please call the Cross Trails Ministry office to speak to the Camp Director regarding any unusual health, emotional, mental or physical concerns your child may have. Cross Trails Ministry welcomes participation in our programs by campers with special needs. However, we are not equipped to provide staff for campers that require one on one care. Individuals should have appropriate social and personal skills for group living, and be age-appropriate for the program for which they are registering.
Equal Opportunity Policy: Acceptance and participation in our programs is the same for everyone without regard to race, color, creed, gender, disability, religious preference, national origin or political belief.
