Open House for New Families Saturday, June 19 FREE All ages are welcome


Canceled. Due to the inadvisability of bringing together 100 people for a day trip to Canoe Island during the pandemic, we are canceling our annual Open House in 2021. We are planning a virtual event in its place. Read about our cancelation here and sign up for the virtual event here.

Open House provides a chance for new families to tour the island and meet the staff. New campers attending Session 1 may stay overnight with full supervision and special activities until other campers arrive on Sunday. A light buffet will be served and the pool and tennis court will be open. All persons wishing to attend Open House must register online by June 1st.

Our voluntary three-tier tuition structure allows families to pay more than the base level tuition that has traditionally been requested. These additional funds help fund our camp infrastructure projects to insure that our facility continues to support our excellent programs. Your choice of fee level will be treated confidentially. We thank you, in advance, for your registration at whatever tuition level you are comfortable. We do have a financial aid program for academically motivated children who need financial assistance to attend camp.

Level A is our base tuition level, that requires outside funding efforts to cover the direct and indirect costs of operating, maintaining, and upgrading the camp.

Level B is a higher tuition level that covers about 90% of the true costs of operating, maintaining and upgrading the camp including our low camper to staff ratio and the maintenance and up keep of our buildings, boats, equipment and island infrastructure.

Level C is our highest tuition level that covers all of the true costs of operating camp.
