Realizing that families have different abilities to pay, YMCA Camp Benson offers a voluntary three-tier pricing program. When registering please take a moment to review the pricing descriptions and choose the rate that is most suitable for your family. This program is completely confidential and in no way affects the quality of the experience your child receives.

Price A: reflects the true cost of camp, taking into account staff wages, maintenance, food, program supplies and depreciation due to wear and tear.

Price B and C: are subsidized rates funded by donations made to YMCA Camp Benson. Price B is for families that need a little financial assistance and Price C is a more heavily subsidized rate.
