Why 2 Prices for Summer Camp? The Choice is Yours! We offer a
voluntary two-tier fee program. Choose the tier most suitable for your family
and knowing that all campers receive the same Camp Bethel experience, no matter
what amount you choose to pay. The Subsidized Fee is available
through May 1. You may be surprised to learn that this fee does not reflect what
it costs to offer summer camp programs. This reduced (subsidized) rate is made
possible through the mission funding dollars we receive from our District
congregations, our annual fund-raising events, and gifts from individuals who
value the summer camp experience at Camp Bethel. The Supporters Fee
reflects what it actually costs to provide a summer camp experience for one
camper, including counselor and lifeguard pay, utilities, insurance, meals,
building and vehicle upkeep, and replacing outdated equipment. Choosing the
Supporters Fee helps us do more with the mission funding we receive and
stretches our limited campership funds to help more children experience camp.
