One of the growing concerns in Summer camping is the cost of registration fee's. We understand that parents should know why camping fees are increasing and demonstrate what those fees cover. In an effort to do this we have broken down some of the camping costs below and held them up against what we charge as a camp for registration fee's.

The largest increases over the years has been the introduction of GST on all camp fees, the increasing cost of proper camp insurance, increase of camping regulations and overall cost inflation.

Some of the Camping Fee's

  • Taxes - The GST is 5% on all registration fee's, and goods sold.
  • Meals - Meals at a restaurant generally cost a minimum of five dollars at a low cost establishment. Campers eat 16 meals at their time at camp averaging out to $80 per camper. Campers also receive 2 snacks a day equaling $15.00 per camper.
  • Accommodations - Accommodations are provided for at next to no cost, but even a basic Inn would potentially charge $80.00 per night for a child and an adult. We do not do that because that would be ridiculous and we are a non-profit organization.
  • Program Costs - Program costs cover the amount required to run each summer program. Some skills, such as sports, cost as little as $1.00 per camper to run. Others, such as horsemanship, may cost up to $30.00 per camper. Our camp runs ten skills resulting on average a $50.00-$75.00 camper cost for skills. Additional program costs such as chapel, books, wide games, DVD's, etc are not included in that cost.
  • Payroll - This is one of the highest cost as all summer workers must be screened to ensure they are not of any risk, trained and offered an honorarium. During a full week the camp will be running around 50 workers. The cost of the honorarium alone for these workers is over $50.00 per camper during a packed week. During a non packed week the costs are higher.
  • Insurance & Levy's - It seems that this price increases every year. Right now the cost is around $15.00 - $20.00 per camper based on our current camper numbers.

So far we have totaled up $235 dollars and that does not include the costs of medical, utilities, office, maintenance, janitorial, worker training, upgrades, etc.

The Dauphin Bible Camp firmly believes in keeping summer camps affordable and available to all children. All together Dauphin Bible Camp's registration fee's are approximately half of the current cost to operate a summer camp. The rest of the camp costs are covered by donations.
