Policies and Procedures

  • Camp Scholarships & Financial Assistance

    Financial aid “camperships” and payment plans are available. No one should miss out on camp because of the cost! We will not turn anyone away from a week of camp for financial reasons, but we do ask each family to contribute something toward their fee. Contact our office or review Campership Information here.

  • Early Payment Discount

    If you pay in full or set up a payment plan by March 31st, you will automatically receive $25 off of your camp fee.

  • Sibling Discounts

    The first child attending an overnight program from a household will pay full price, then a $50 discount is available for each additional sibling. This discount is available for all programs except Day Camp, Family Camp or Grandparent Camp.

  • Multiple Program Discounts

    A camper who attends more than one overnight program in a summer can receive a discount of $25 off the second program. This discount is available for all programs except Day Camp, Family Camp or Grandparent Camp.

  • Household Maximum

    The Household Maximum for Family Camp and Grandparent Camp applies to 2 adults over 18 years of age, and up to 8 minor children. Additional adults are welcome, but must pay separately. All minors must be registered by their parents or legal guardians.

  • Deposits

    The deposit is non-refundable and must be paid to guarantee your registration. The deposit is $175 per person for all programs except Women’s Big R, Family Camp and Grandparent Camp which require a $75 per person deposit.

    For Group Reservations: While your deposit is non-refundable, you may transfer up to four deposits per program to your group bill if you do not fill them by March 1st.  Any spaces you don’t fill beyond four per program will be forfeited to our Campership fund.

  • Fees & Fee Refunds

    Camp fees are due May 15th. Campers who register after May 15th 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 fee refund.

  • Housing Policy

    All youth campers will be assigned to cabins in their program based on their registration form.  Overnight campers may request to be housed with one friend of the same gender, in the same program. Requests are not guaranteed. For summer family programs, each family group will receive their own room with a private bathroom.

  • 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 camp property.

  • Health and Special Needs

    Prior to arriving, all campers must complete a health and release form. Please call the Cross Trails Ministry regarding any unusual health, emotional, mental or physical concerns of your child. Overnight campers should have appropriate social and personal skills for group living. 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 help with dressing or toileting, or need one on one care or supervision. If that is a need of your camper, please contact the Cross Trails Ministry office for possible accommodations.
