Pricing Structure

Camp Ondessonk is a self-sufficient organization that relies entirely on camper fees, grants, and contributions to operate. Unlike many other camps, prices are all-inclusive; all kids have access to all activities included in their session-type with no additional fees, period. Realizing that we serve a wide variety of families with varying abilities to pay, we’ve adopted a 3-tier pricing program. Please review the descriptions and decide which of the three prices your family is able and willing to pay for your child’s camp experience. This is strictly a voluntary honor system and in no way influences the experience children receive.
