Registration and Fees

Fees: City of Acworth Residents: $115.00 per week 
          Non-City of Acworth Residents: $140.00 per week 

Registration: Camp registration is not restricted to one location.  Parents are encouraged to register their child for different weeks at each location if campers are interested in a variety of summer camp activities!  Please make sure to be careful during registration so campers are not accidentally registered for the same week at different locations.  Deposits are non-refundable/non-transferable. 

A $25.00 non-refundable/non-transferable deposit will be due at registration for each week that you would like to reserve a spot for your child.  An additional $25.00 fee/week will also be due at registration for non-residents.  Deposits and fees are included in the weekly registration cost.  Remaining camp balances can be paid immediately upon registration or on the first day of each week your child has reserved. 

There will not be an extra charge for Extended Hours. We have built that cost into the weekly camp fee.  All campers will have the option of being dropped off as early as 7:30 a.m. and picked up as late as 6:00 p.m. Anyone picked up after 6:00 p.m. will be required to pay a late fee.  Daily camp activities will not begin until 9:00 a.m. and will conclude at 4:00 p.m.
