One of the most unique aspects of your free TDS membership is the opportunity to utilize scholarship money on summer camps. The types of summer camp opportunities are truly incredible, from academic camps to rec camps to sleep away camps and everywhere in between.
We believe strongly that summer camps, regardless of their focus, promote teamwork and help young people develop socially.
Our goal is to not only help our members pay for camps, but to work with summer camps specifically on ways to partner. The cost of camps range greatly, depending on what an individual is looking for.
According to the American Camp Association (ACA) in 2012, a nationwide network of over 2,400 accredited camps that has been in existence for over 100 years, day camps range from $304 a week to $500 plus.
Additionally, sleep away camps can cost anywhere from $690 a week to upwards of $2,000 per week, so the expenses associated with these camping opportunities can add up.
