After doing some number crunching we have discovered that the actual cost to send a youth to camp is $375, $75 per day per camper. This includes staff salaries, food, insurance, utilities, basically every cost of having campers on site.  The goal for Gasper River Catholic Youth Camp has always been to break even, we are a 501c(3) non-profit organization.  We also do not want to be a financial burden to the Diocese.   We currently charge only $275 for a week long camp experience.  In order to ensure that camp is affordable for all and to help us cover our expenses, our board of directors came up with the three tier pricing scale for camp.  All that we ask is for your family to pray about what you can afford and pay the rate that best fits your family’s needs.  If you need financial assistance we ask that you check with your parishes.

We strive to keep camp as affordable as possible and we do not wish money to be a barrier for any child to attend.  The national average for a week long summer camp experience is now well over $700.  Please know that we will do all that we can to keep this wonderful ministry available to all in our diocese.   If you have questions, please feel free to contact our office.
