Pricing structure:

The cost of running this non-profit program is approximately $1000 per camper; this includes room, board, and supplies, as well as the shared costs of instructors, facilities, and presenters.  We ask that families with the ability to pay the full cost consider contributing this amount to support the program.  However, B-WISER aims to be accessible to all.  Inability to pay should not be a barrier to attending the camp.  B-WISER works to raise funds via gifts and grants in order to offer a subsidized rate, so that any interested student might attend.  The subsidized camp fee for 2024 is $600.  In addition, students who qualify for Ohio’s free and reduced school meals program are encouraged to apply for financial aid scholarships to further reduce the cost.

The minimum price before scholarships is $600, but those with the means to cover the full cost for their camper are asked to pay up to $1000.  The quality of the program is strengthened by your ability and willingness to cover the cost of attendance.  We also welcome and appreciate any donations.

Enrollment confirmation notification:

Registrations are processed on a rolling basis, and generally confirmation notices are sent within a week.  (Please contact us if you do not hear back within 2-weeks.)  Payment must be received for registration to be considered complete and to hold your spaceEveryone who has submitted a complete registration with payment by the deadline will be notified no later than April 30.  No refunds for cancellations after May 3.  

After registration is confirmed, campers and parents/guardians will also need to complete, sign, and return a number of forms including the liability waiver, emergency medical authorization, and additional medication information.  The links for these forms will be emailed and are available under Parent Info & Forms.  Required forms should be received no later than May 30.  Campers will not be able to attend if their file is incomplete.
