Dates and fees
Here is some basic information you need to know about our camp program.
Project Acorn 2020 will take place in July – exact dates coming soon!
The fee we ask each participant to pay for Project Acorn is $300. This includes the cost of food, board and program supplies for the duration of camp.
It’s preferred that a deposit is made when you are accepted to the program and submit all your paperwork. The balance of 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 participant and the Ten Oaks Project) by December 31 in order for a participant to return to camp the following summer.
Once we’ve confirmed your fee/subsidy amount, you can pay online via Paypal, Interac e-transfer 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
The Ten Oaks Project is committed to ensuring that all youth can have a Project Acorn experience, regardless of their ability to pay. We understand the financial stresses that many of the youth in our program face. At the same time, the organization seeks to cover a portion of its costs through camp fees, with our participants helping us ensure we can continue to offer a quality camp program.
To meet this balance, we charge a camp fee, but also offer subsidies to ensure our program remains economically accessible.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.
Pay it Forward!
As a non-profit, we depend on donations to be able to provide subsidies for participants who request for one. Every dollar counts and goes a long way. When filling out the camp registration form, participants are given the option to make a donation to our ‘pay it forward’ program. We use these funds to make sure everyone has access to Project Acorn.
