Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale may be used to reduce the amount paid for summer camps. The scale ranges from 10-100% and is based on income, number of members per household, and special circumstances affecting the applicant's ability to pay. Applications are available online, at the administrative office or any recreation center. If approved, the reduced fee is valid for one year.
