Beginning this year, AYS will be moving to a flat-rate weekly price for summer camps, with no drop-in or single day options. This change will allow us to create a more consistent and beneficial program for children as a high quality, fun, and enriching week-long camp, with weekly themed projects and activities that span multiple days to a full week, while also allowing us to better anticipate staffing needs and hire high quality staff to serve our families.
As a mission-based, non-profit organization, we strive to maintain a consistent pricing structure for families while also sustaining enough income to cover operating costs. Therefore, to help provide peace of mind for our families, we are locking in our prices for the next three years, so you know what to expect.
|Service||Hours||Weekly Price Per Child|
|Full Day||7:00am – 6:00pm||$200|
Registration closes on Tuesday, May 30, 2023.
