  • Am I permitted to miss a day of camp?

    Due to the nature of the programs and the required teamwork, attendance for all programs is mandatory. If you have a special circumstance that will require you to be absent on any day during your program, you must notify us of this as soon as it becomes known to you. Unapproved absences will result in dismissal from the program.

  • Are there any costs in addition to the initial $750 commuter or $1500 residential fee?

    No, the initial fee will cover the tuition for your program. This tuition fee includes meals, giveaways, and all activities in which you will participate during your program. The $1500 for the residential program includes room and board. If you choose, you may bring additional spending money for field trips and snacks and miscellaneous costs. However, this is not required.
