We host a Family Orientation for campers and their families at the Campground on the Sunday before the start of Week One. You will have the opportunity to meet our Camp Directors, as well as some of our camp counselors. This is a great opportunity to tour the areas of camp that we utilize and familiarize your child to the camp setting. The Family Orientation is hosted in an open house fashion.

Camp Location

Camp Program Costs

The cost to attend our summer camp is $550.00 for the week, which includes a $75.00 non-refundable deposit.

There is also a $550.00 fee for a 1:1 if staff determines your child needs additional support and is not eligible for RI Medical Assistance or Katie Beckett.

Tuition and fees may be paid by personal check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or checks/ purchase orders from other funding sources.

PLEASE NOTE: Katie Beckett (RI Medical Assistance or SSI) does NOT pay for the camp tuition ($550.00) but does cover a 1:1 staff, if it is determined your child needs the additional support and is eligible for RI Medical Assistance or Katie Beckett.

Transportation to Camp

We will announce if we can provide transportation in a few weeks. There are COVID-19 protocols we are researching to ensure we can do transportation safely, and cost effectively.

We offer round-trip transportation from the Johnston High School parking lot. Our staff will accompany campers on the bus to camp and then back to the drop off point.

The cost for transportation is $100 for the week. Please indicate your transportation preference on page 10 of the application, and include a unique codeword for any person who may be picking up your child from either the campground or our transportation drop off location.
