Q: Why is the price 75 dollars per kid this year? What does this cover?
A: While keeping the camps affordable but also sustainable, we voted on a price change this year to be able to cover camp costs. Raise ‘Em Outdoors costs for camp are around 150 a child, and that is with many donations involved. We never want to charge that much for a camp however, so we chose to go for half the rate. We understand this can still be expensive for many families, so we have opened a scholarship application for your family to still be able to attend if you need!
The costs of admission cover all meals for the whole family, and all the activities and amenities provided.
Q: Who will my child be spending her/his day with?
A: Your child will be put into a group with other kids in their age group. Each group will be numbered or named and have a schedule to follow throughout the day of what station to go to, where and when. Instructors will help let each group know their start and stop time and to move on to the next station. Parents will accompany their children the entire camp weekend. If you have two children in different age groups, you will stay with your youngest. If this is an issue, we will accommodate the best we can, and put your children in the same group. Just FYI one kid may be spending the camp with all older or younger kids, than their age, if that’s what you choose.
Q: Will camp contact me in the event of an emergency?
A: Yes, if you are not with your child and something is to happen we will call you or find you at camp ASAP.
