Realizing that families have different abilities and resources to pay for summer camp, this year, John Knox Center is introducing a voluntary three-tiered pricing program. You may choose the tier that is most suitable for your family. It is a "free-will" system; you pick the level that is comfortable and affordable for you. Our goal in introducing tiered pricing is simple. We want to continue to provide Christ centered programming in a safe, welcoming and fun environment, while offering opportunities for partnership for those who value this ministry and wish to help preserve John Knox Center for generations to come.

  • Tier I - This is the lowest rate and is the subsidized rate John Knox Center has historically offered. This price does not reflect what it costs for a camper to attend summer camp.
  • Tier II - This is a partially subsidized rate for families who wish to pay a little more and help support the John Knox Center ministry, but cannot afford the full price of camp.
  • Tier III - This rate most closely reflects what it costs for a camper to attend summer camp at John Knox Center, including facility upkeep and maintenance, staffing, utilities, and equipment.
