All families receive the same experience regardless of what tier they pay, and all families are free to choose the option that works best for them.

Tier Pricing Explained
To meet the goals of developing and expanding the ministry of Black Rock Retreat, while also keeping Family Camp affordable for as many people as possible, we are introducing a three-tiered system that allows families to choose the price that best fits their financial situation. In the past, we have charged flat rates for Family Camp that were subsidized and did not reflect the full cost of our program. The new system still provides the standard low cost option, while also presenting the actual costs of camp for those who can afford it. All families receive the same experience regardless of what tier they pay, and all families are free to choose the option that works best for them. The price you choose remains confidential, only known by those who handle registration and payments.
Please note that this pricing system is separate from our Sponsorship Program. To find out if you are eligible for sponsorship, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (717) 529-3360.
Tier 1: Subsidized Cost
This has historically been our standard pricing to keep family camp affordable. Rather than raising all prices significantly, we will keep this rate as low as possible even though it does not fully account for the cost of our camps and programs. We can offer this option thanks to donors who share our vision to keep camp affordable and accessible to as many families as possible.
Tier 2: Direct Cost
This rate is closer to covering the expenses of Family Camp at cost, but results in less revenue than is needed to further develop our program. Choosing this option helps donations to Family Camp go farther in other needed areas.
Tier 3: Sponsors Cost
In addition to the expenses above, this rate reflects the costs of maintaining facilities, grounds, and equipment as well as providing additional resources to help other families to come who wouldn’t be able to afford Family Camp on thier own. By choosing this option, you are joining in developing the ministry of Black Rock Retreat for future generations.
*please contact us if you are interested in receiving a tax receipt for the difference between tier 2 and tier 3 pricing
** Cabins are available for families of 6 or more. If you are interested in the cabin option call Barb Keeler at 717.529.3379.
