Registration & Camp Tuition Fees

 Camp tuition covers most direct costs such as food, program supplies, supplementary health and accident insurance, and camp counselor salaries. Indirect costs such as planning and administering the program are costs subsidized by the Camp Sertoma Committee. 

  •  $25 deposit --required for each camper to reserve a spot at camp. Your $25 deposit will be applied toward camp tuition fees & must accompany all applications.  
  • $475 per camper for applications received by Apil 1 ​(includes $25 early bird discount)
  • $500 per camper for applications received between April 1 and May 1.

Camp Sertoma Refund Policy

Camp Deposits 

Deposits are nonrefundable, except in these instances: 

  • If, during the application process, your child is found to not be eligible to attend Camp Sertoma, your deposit will be refunded. 
  • For first-time campers and their families—if, after attending the May 9 Camp Open House, you decide that camp is not for you, we will refund your deposit. Written notification must be made within one week of the Open House.

Camp Tuition 

Our staff and volunteers spend significant time and money planning camp programming months prior to the start of camp. Prompt cancellation notification allows time to make necessary adjustments. 

If you find that your camper can no longer attend Camp Sertoma, please notify the camp registration coordinator as early as possible. 

  • A full refund will be provided if Camp Sertoma is cancelled by the Camp Sertoma planning committee due to insufficient registration, acts of nature, or other reasons beyond its control. 
  • In the event that a registered camper has a family emergency or is sick, a written refund request must be made no later than 10 business days after the start of camp date to receive a refund in the amount of fees paid less any nonrefundable deposit.
