Why three prices?

We offer a voluntary, three-tiered pricing program based on the needs of your family. This program is completely confidential and in no way affects the quality of the experience your child receives.

  • Price A is the lowest cost, funded by donations to the greatest extent possible.

  • Price B is partially sponsored by contributed funds, and

  • Price C represents the actual cost of camp operations, including long-term wear, tear and depreciation. Families, like you, have voluntarily paid the B and C prices to ensure Raintree Ranch continues to thrive. Since 2005 more than $500,000 has been given to offset repair and replacement costs at our camps.
