*Why is camp so expensive?!?!
You may be asking a question we hear quite a bit. We are aware that camp is costly. Hume Lake provides an awesome program, quality speakers, band and it is a week where you get to hang out with your fun camp leaders! That’s right, we do budget our camp leaders into the cost since many of them take a week off work to come. We also budget the cost of the bus into camp since it is about 3.5-4 hours away we take a bus with all our stuff. Each year the price of camp goes up, this last year in particular the cost from Hume went up $20, so we adjust our price accordingly so we financially break even.

With that said, we don’t want the price of camp to be a barrier to you if you cannot budget it in this year. We can submit a camp scholarship to Hume Lake, and we have access to camp scholarships through our West Hills funds. We are also planning a pancake breakfast fundraiser for the spring for students who are in the Morgan Hill area and can work the event.
