Please make sure to select a payment tier under session options.

Tier I  is our historically subsidized rate and does not reflect the true cost of operating summer camp programs.

Tier II  is our partially subsidized rate for those who can pay a little more but still can not afford the actual cost of camp.

Tier III  closely accounts for the true costs of camp including wear and tear of buildings and grounds.

Why are there multiple prices listed for each camp? What is Tiered Pricing?
Realizing that many families have different abilities to pay, Stronghold has instituted a voluntary three-tier fee program.  You may choose the tier that is most suitable for your family.  All campers recieve the same Stronghold experience no matter what they pay.  For those families that can not afford Tier 1 additional financial assistance is available to ensure that all children have this wonderful opportunity to attend camp.  In addition, some families use this system to give themselves a multi-child or multi-week discount.
