6 ways to save on summer camp

Finding an affordable camp can be tough.

A camp experience is an investment that yields a lifetime of benefits, according to American Camp Association CEO Tom Holland. But not everyone has the funds to invest.

These days camp doesn’t come cheap. Most weekly day camps average at least $200 for one child. Add multiple weeks and it can get pricey.

It is possible, however, to give your child the classic camp experience without breaking the bank — if you know where to look.

“The American Camp Association believes the benefits of a camp experience are priceless, but we also realize that parents’ pockets aren’t bottomless,” Holland says. “There is a camp out there for every child and for every budget.”

From available discounts to low-cost programs, here are six ways to save on camp this summer. Be sure to check with the camps for current pricing as prices may have changed.
