Tiered Pricing - Why 3 Prices?
Realizing that families have different abilities to pay, Heartland Center has instituted a voluntary three-tier fee program.
This program is made possible by individuals donating to Heartland Center's general operating fund and by the shared mission donations of the Presbyterian (USA) Churches in Heartland Presbytery.
You may choose the tier that is most suitable for your family. It is really an honor system; you tell us what is affordable for your family. All campers receive the same Heartland Center experience no matter what they pay. For those families that cannot afford Tier 1, additional financial assistance is available to ensure that all children have this wonderful opportunity to attend camp. In addition, some families use this system to give themselves a multi-child or multi-week discount.
Again this program is voluntary and in no way influences the experience children receive, yet it offers the opportunity for families to take an active role in supporting the true cost of their child's camp experience.
Tier I is our historically subsidized rate and does not reflect the true cost of operating summer camp programs.
Tier II is our partially subsidized fee for those who can pay a little more but still cannot afford the actual cost of camp.
Tier III more closely accounts for the true costs of camp including wear and tear of building and grounds.
