IT'S EASIER THAN YOU THINK!
Questions frequently arise about tiered pricing. Tiered pricing is a structure that Camp Rivercrest implemented a few years ago, and many other summer camps are now doing as well. The idea behind it is simple:
Pay however much works for your family!
Over the past five years, the leadership at Camp Rivercrest has worked hard to keep fee increases to a minimum. Unfortunately, the costs to run a high-quality camp have increased during this same time. This has produced considerable strain on our budget and has caused us to rely on donations and off-season guest group fees to cover the remaining operational expenses.
Recognizing that families have differing abilities to help offset our costs, we have instituted a voluntary tiered pricing structure. Rather than raising all camp fees to levels that better help cover expenses--and risk losing out on ministry opportunities for those who might then not be able to afford camp--we are giving you the option to pay more if you are able.
This pricing does not influence the quality of the camp experience for any child attending camp, but it does help us to continue to provide excellent programs, staffing. This new pricing provides the opportunity for families to take an active role in supporting the true cost of their child's camp experience.
Tier A- Does not reflect the true cost of operating our summer camp programs but is available to ensure that no camper gets left behind. This tier relies heavily on donations to cover the remaining expenses.
(For families who cannot afford Tier A, there is additional financial assistance available for those who qualify for our Financial Aid Program.)
Tier B- Allows us to offset some of our expenses, but results in less revenue than needed to maintain a balanced budget and continue improving the camper experience.
Tier C- More closely accounts for the true costs of camp, including food and supplies, insurance, facilities upkeep and improvements, summer staff salaries and expenses, new programming and activities, and the actual costs of running camp.
(For families and individuals who would like to give beyond their tier's pricing, we appreciate all donations! There is an option to make a monetary donation on your registration form.)
Although it is up to you to decide what you can afford to pay toward your child's camp experience, please consider selecting the highest price your family is able to afford. By doing so, you'll not only help to cover the true cost of running camp, but also protect every child's opportunity to meet Christ at camp!
