How much does the weekend cost? The total cost for the weekend is dependent upon the number of people in your party as well as your preference in housing. There are a variety of housing options, ranging in price. Housing and meal prices are set by GPC. Meal prices are per person for the entire weekend (nine meals), which includes Friday dinner through Monday lunch. Facility and camp fees also apply and are based upon the size of your family. See below for the 2021 fee schedule. Please note that both the facility and camp fees have been waived for 2021!
In addition, some housing choices do not include linens (bed sheets, washcloths and towels). You are welcome to bring your own, or linens can be rented for an additional $14.25 per person for a twin bed, $18.75 for a double bed.
Meal costs may vary, depending on the age of your family members and whether anyone in your family has dietary restrictions. Please note that vegan and gluten-free food options cost an additional $3.50 per meal, for a total weekend additional food cost of $31.50 per person.
So, how much does the weekend cost? Below is a sample 2021 total cost breakdown for a family of four, choosing traditional meals with no dietary restrictions. Accommodations are for three nights and nine meals per person.
Costs can be kept lower if the family brings their own linens, chooses another housing option, is new to the camp, or receives a scholarship (see below).
For ease, payments are typically made in three installments.
Are scholarships available? Yes. There are a limited number of scholarships available. In addition, the LDWFC has a Newcomers Fund, which offers scholarships to new camp attendees. Contributions to either the Newcomers Fund or to the Scholarship Fund are welcomed and greatly appreciated.
Can I register online? Yes you can! Fill out the registration form here. Registration is complete when payment is received.
How do I make payments? Payments are made in three installments. Upon registration, your weekend deposit is due. When you receive an invoice for the weekend deposit, payments can be made either online (see below) or by check payable to LDWFC. In both May and August, you will receive additional invoices for final payments.
How do I make an online payment? When your registration is received, an invoice for a weekend deposit and instructions for online payment will be sent via e-mail.
How safe is LDWFC for children? While all parents/caregivers are responsible for supervision of their minor children at all times, great care is taken to ensure the safety of all camp attendees, including the children. The LDWFC community looks out for the children and the children help each other as well. Additionally, the designated swim periods are always staffed by trained life guards. Driving on campus is limited to only what is necessary; all motorized vehicles must follow a 5 miles per hour speed limit.
How is the food? The meals are good camp-fare, with a salad bar at lunch and dinner. Dietary requests may be made directly with GPC and if you have dietary restrictions please indicate your food needs on the registration form.
Can I bring a bicycle? Yes! GPC safety guidelines ask that all riders share the roads and pathways with pedestrians, yielding to pedestrians when necessary. In addition, bicyclists should not ride after dark and observe 'No Biking Zone' and 'Bicycle Slow Zone' areas as well. All children under the age of 16 must wear helmets while on the property.
