Experience the Magic of
St. Dorothy's Summer Camp

Every summer we offer a variety of camps for kids of all ages. Review the descriptions and choose which one will work for you! We look forward to meeting you at camp.


Summer Camp Tuition Rates & Payment Programs - St. Dorothy's Rest partners with donors, families, the Episcopal Diocese of California, and others to ensure that no child is ever turned away from attending camp due to an inability to pay. Tiered pricing is available for all camp sessions, and families are offered the option to remit camp fees via a one time payment or with a 4, 6, or 8-month payment plan. Camperships are available for families that are unable to afford Tier III pricing. More information on our pricing model is below.

Plan Ahead - After you register, be sure to download our Parent-Camper Handbook which includes all sorts of helpful information, from packing lists, to camp guidelines and more!

Come as You Are

All are welcome at St. Dorothy's Rest!

At St. Dorothy's Rest we affirm and celebrate the dignity and sacred worth of each and every camper, counselor, volunteer, staff member, and guest - regardless of race, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, socio-economic status, or ability

 

In 2019, St. Dorothy's added Gender Expansive bunking to our summer camp housing model, and our staff and volunteers work to foster an environment of radical inclusion through additional facility improvements, equity and diversity trainings, and adaptive programming. Sometimes referring to ourselves as as "The Island of Misfits", St. Dorothy's Rest aims to be a safe haven for those who have ever felt outcast or isolated on the basis of their expression or beliefs. Beloved, you are welcome here.

Every Child Deserves to Go to Camp

St. Dorothy's Rest Tiered Pricing System

Realizing that families have different abilities to pay, St. Dorothy's Rest has instituted a voluntary three-tier fee program. It is really an honor system; you tell us what is affordable and suitable for your family. 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.

 

For those families who cannot afford Tier III prices, additional financial assistance is available in the form of Camperships to ensure that all children have the opportunity to experience the magic and transformation of summer camp. 

Tier I more closely accounts for the true costs of camp including wear and tear of building and grounds, maintenance, marketing, office expenses, and other administrative costs. Families that choose this rate are partnering with St. Dorothy's Rest to invest in our staff and campers, and to secure the future of our facilities and 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. This rate reflects the day-to-day operating costs of camp including food, summer staff, utilities, supplies, and other operational costs.

Tier III is our historically subsidized rate and does not reflect the true cost of operating summer camp programs. This rate is subsidized by our donors and grant partners who value the impact of a quality summer camp experience. Tier III pricing is available for camp sessions that are 5 or more days in length.
