CAMPER FEES

General Session – $395.00 (plus $20.00 bus fee)

Short Session – $310.00 (plus $20.00 bus fee)

Lead Program – $425.00

Lead2 and Lead3 – $500.00

Please note, the actual cost for a week of camp for a camper at Camp McGovern is $700. Thanks to our generous donors and supporters we are able to offer camp at a lower cost to our campers.

In 2006, a grant from the K-W & Area United Way allowed us to expand our service to children from local United Ways and Family & Children’s Services. These new groups found the program to be very beneficial for their children and their families and they continue to send children to McGovern to this day.

In fact, since 2007, children from other social service agencies have surpassed the numbers from Big Brother Big Sister agencies. Of particular note is Family & Children’s Services of Waterloo Region who have been our single largest client since 2007. In 2010 they sent 125 “foster children” to McGovern which represents over 25% of our campers!

We serve any child who is considered under privileged or at risk, campers can also be referred through schools and community centers.

NEW POLICY

This year if a camper is being sent home, we are implementing a $100 charge to the agency if Camp McGovern is responsible for transporting your camper home. This charge will be entirely circumstantial, but it is the family’s or agency’s responsibility to arrange the camper’s transportation home or the charge will be applied.
