How Can I Pay for a Session of Camp at Eagle’s Nest?

Bookmark and Share

Camp holds many valuable experiences: opportunities for children to connect with nature, to make friends, to build skills, to take in the endless mountain views, to gaze at the stars that shine unobstructed by streetlights, and to feel the cool mountain breezes. Like many quality experiences available in life, camp is not inexpensive. Our tuition covers the cost of hiring exceptional educators and counselors, purchasing quality ingredients for our delicious whole foods kitchen, and providing campers with access to activities and programs that are different from ones that they might find at other summer camps. Eagle’s Nest Camp is also part of a non-profit foundation, so our tuition also supports scholarships for many of our campers. Last year we were able to award over $110,000 in “camperships” for our Eagle’s Nest Camp and Hante Adventures families. Even though camp is not cheap, we do try to make it affordable. If you are concerned about the cost of tuition for Eagle’s Nest, here are some things that you can do to help make a session at Eagle’s Nest a reality:

Discounts:

Eagle’s Nest offers discounts for registering early, sending siblings to camp, etc. A complete list of discounts is available on our website on the Financial Information page.  Register by September 10th to receive a 5% discount off tuition.

Recruitment Discounts:

Families can earn discounts for hosting Eagle’s Nest Camp and Hante Adventures information sessions and for recruiting friends to attend camp. For more information about becoming a Camp Representative, please contact Sara at campassistant@enf.org. We are currently recruiting Representatives for 2019 and will begin scheduling parties soon. As an added benefit, we invite Camp Representatives and their families to attend a retreat weekend at Eagle’s Nest in October.    

Campership:

We know that it is very difficult to make plans nearly a year in advance when you may be concerned about finances; however, we want to work with you to make it easier. When you apply for a campership, your discounted deposit of $150 is fully refundable if we are unable to award the financial aid you need for your child to attend camp. The deadline for the first round of financial aid is December 1st and the second round is February 25th. Apply now so you have plenty of time to complete the application.

Payment Plans:

In addition to offering financial aid, Eagle’s Nest can set up a payment plan for you allowing you to pay your tuition incrementally throughout the year. Spacing out payments has proven to be very helpful for many of our camp families. If you are interested in a payment plan, you can contact Molly at register@enf.org to find out more or set it up online when you register for camp. 

We hope that we will be able to help make Eagle’s Nest Camp and Hante Adventures a reality for your family this year.
