Dates and fees
Here is some basic information you need to know about our summer camp program.
In 2017, Camp Ten Oaks will take place from July 30-August 5.
The fee for Camp Ten Oaks is $900 per camper, and includes the cost of traveling to/from camp from Toronto or Ottawa via school bus.
The Ten Oaks Project is committed to ensuring that that all children and youth can attend our summer camp programs. No camper will be turned away because of lack of funds. We know that every family’s budget is different, and so we offer four tiers of fees for Camp Ten Oaks to help cover the costs of those who need financial support. To help us make Camp Ten Oaks accessible to more campers, please select the tier that best reflects your family’s budget when you register your child for camp.
- Tier 1: $1000 (this includes the true cost per child – $900 – and a tax deductible donation of $100 to help us offer subsidies to other campers)
- Tier 2: $900
- Tier 3: $700
- Tier 4: $550
If none of these fee levels are possible for you, please see the section on subsidies below.
We also offer families flexible payment arrangements including monthly installment payments. Camp fees must be paid in full OR post-dated cheques for the full fee must be sent to the Ten Oaks Project by the first day of camp. Post-dated cheques must be dated no later than December 31. Camp fees must be paid in full (matching the amount agreed upon by the family and the Ten Oaks Project) by December 31 in order for a family to retain their spot(s) at camp next summer.
Once we’ve confirmed your fee/subsidy amount, you can pay online via Paypal or credit card, or send us payment directly. Please make all cheques payable to the Ten Oaks Project. Any payments returned due to insufficient funds are subject to a $30 administration fee.
Fee subsidy is available
Subsidies are determined using a sliding scale fee that is based upon your needs, financial capabilities and an agreement that is acceptable to both you and the Ten Oaks Project. We consider special circumstances when providing assistance. Because the dollars available to provide financial assistance are limited, we will determine eligibility and percentage of financial assistance on an individual family basis.
To apply for a subsidy, select the “Apply for Subsidy” option on our registration form under the “Fee Tier” drop down menu, and fill out the questions for the “Subsidy Application” portion of the form.
