All in all, it’s just a, couple kids in the wall. (Apologies to Pink Floyd.)

Changing the Cost of Camp

This year I am raising the cost of my camp to $185 per week. Returning families will receive a discount at $175 per week. If you have used Camp Vamonos! before, you know that I do not have extra charges or fees; when I take public transit with the kids, it comes out of my pocket.  I feel the new rate is still reasonable, and I hope my camp families will understand the need for the increase.

For an additional $15 per week, parents may drop their children off at 8:00 am and pick them up by 6:00 pm.

Thanks!
