Realizing that families have differing abilities to pay for camp, Procter is implementing a tiered pricing system for camps in 2018. Procter will always work with families and churches to provide Campership funds to make camp available to all regardless of financial ability to pay.
This fee structure relies on the honor system, we trust you to make the best choice for your family. Some families might use Tier 3 for a second camp session or additional child to give themselves a discount. The rate your family pays is confidential; all campers receive the same camp experience regardless of which tier you choose.
True Cost: This rate more closely accounts for the TRUE costs of camp. Families who can afford to pay Tier 1 are encouraged to do so. True costs include all direct costs plus deferred maintenance, insurance, utilities, etc. You help Procter make needed upgrades and continue to grow in the future.
Direct Cost: Direct costs covers our direct program costs, camp staff stipends, food and administrative costs.
Subsidized Rate: This is the historically subsidized rate, and does not reflect the true cost of Procter’s summer operations. The Subsidized rate is available thanks to mission share funds, Friends of Procter, and other Diocesan support. This is very nearly the rate you have always paid.
Campership– For families unable to pay the Subsidized Rate. Procter and the Diocese of Southern Ohio are committed to making camp accessible for all campers, adults and children, regardless of ability to pay. Campership is supported by private donations and Bishop Breidenthal’s plate collection at parish visits. We are proud to have granted over $12,000 in Campership funds in 2017!
Indicate you are requesting Campership during the registration process; you will be prompted to complete an additional form. Campership functions on the honor system, we do not ask for personal financial information. Initially, families are asked to contribute 1/3rd of the camp fees, Procter contributes 1/3rd in Campership and ideally a parish sponsors the camper with the last 1/3rd. The 1/3rd family contribution is negotiable, however each family is required to make some amount of financial investment.
Goals for Tiered Pricing and Campership
Accessibility: To work towards making our camp community reflective of all the people in our Diocese, and make a camp experience possible for all families.
Sustainability: To ensure our camp program and facilities are sustainable for generations of campers to come.
Community: At Procter Camp we encourage radical hospitality, function as an intentional community, and practice welcoming each other as if we are welcoming Jesus. We believe we are modeling the way the world could be, where everyone is embraced and valued for their authentic selves, regardless of their socio-economic background.
