4-Tier Pricing Program Explained
Realizing that families have differing abilities to pay, CGI has instituted a voluntary 4-tier pricing program. Please take a moment to look at the following tier descriptions and choose the tier that is most suitable for your family. All children will have the same experience no matter which tier a family is able to pay. The tier selected by a family will be kept confidential.
Tier 1 is based on the full cost of campers participating in the selected session. If you are able to pay this amount, please do so. Thank you!
Tier 2 is a partially subsidized rate that will enable families that just can’t afford the full cost of the camp program. Please, choose this rate if your family has the need to receive a subsidized rate.
Tier 3 is a more heavily subsidized rate for families whose children would not be able to attend camp otherwise. If you can not afford either of the higher rates, please pay this amount.
Tier 4 is a variable rate for families whose financial assistance needs is greater than the subsidized rates above. We provide more significantly financial assistance to families that demonstrate need through our Financial Assistance Program. If you need additional assistance, please mark this option on the Enrollment Application.
Application & Deposit
A $150 (per week of camp) deposit payable by check or credit card is required with each camper’s application. If this deposit amount presents an obstacle, please call us at 845.425.0903 to discuss.
After the first child pays full tuition, each sibling who enrolls shall receive a 10% off their tuition reduction. (Note: Discount not applicable if receiving a CGI Scholarship.)
Please note that CGI charges an additional fee for campers who are not being dropped off at camp and need transportation to our site.
Full payment is due by May 1, 2019. Customized payment plans are available on request; please call us at 845.425.0903 to discuss.
CGI requires a $150 (per camp week) deposit to hold a place for your camper. Should you change your mind, for any reason, prior to June 1, 2020, we will refund all funds paid to CGI less $300 to cover administrative costs. After June 1, 2020, no refunds can be provided upon cancellation.
For families requesting financial assistance, if sufficient financial assistance is not awarded, CGI will refund 100% of your deposit, provided that you inform us in writing or via e-mail prior to June 1, 2019 that your camper will not be attending CGI.
