Realizing that families have different abilities and resources to pay for summer camp, John Knox Center is utilizing a voluntary three-tiered pricing program. You may choose the tier that is most suitable for your family. It is a “free-will” system; you pick the level that is comfortable and affordable for you. Our goal in introducing tiered pricing is simple. We want to continue to provide Christ centered programming in a safe, welcoming and fun environment, while offering opportunities for partnership for those who value this ministry and wish to help preserve John Knox Center for generations to come.
Tier I – The lowest subsidized rate John Knox Center has historically offered. This price does not reflect what it costs for a camper to attend summer camp.
Tier II – A partially subsidized rate for families who wish to pay a little more and help support the John Knox Center ministry, but cannot afford the full price of camp.
Tier III – The rate which most closely reflects what it costs for a camper to attend John Knox Center, including facility upkeep, staffing, utilities, and equipment.
Covenant Partners (Age 16 -18): This leadership experience is unique to John Knox and gives participants the important opportunity to develop skills, strengths, and talents while benefiting local churches in the form of service and leadership. During their time, C.P.'s learn leadership skills, develop individual talents and gifts, and become familiar with a variety of educational resources. They also focus on personal growth by challenging themselves mentally, physically, and spiritually; and will have the opportunity to put those skills into action working while at camp. Covenant Partners spend two weeks at camp (excluding weekends). This is an incredible opportunity for youth to work and serve in the camp environment. Please contact our Program Director, Penny Laitos to get more information about this leadership program.
