SHUTTLE

In the event that these subsidized prices are still too much, we have a summer camp scholarship that provides further subsidy available upon application.

What is subsidized pricing? Every dollar of subsidized camper fees is offset through donations to cover the full common market value price. In 2022 Frontier Lodge raised around $300,000 to cover the operational costs of running Frontier Lodge. 

 

As mentioned above Frontier Lodge’s goal is to have campers know and experience the goodness of God. Frontier will continue to fundraise to support the growth and operational cost of running camp. If you are in a position to donate you can find more information on our website under the tab “Donate” at the top of the page. 

If canceling 30 days or more before the start of summer camp you will receive a full refund. If canceling your booking less than 30 days before the start of your booking you will receive a refund to an amount determined by our discretion. In the event that Frontier Lodge cancels an event, your full payment will be refunded. 

Substitutes are not permitted. No refunds will be made for dismissals due to disciplinary action, late arrivals, or early departures.
