Due to the high volume of summer camp registrations for HoneyRock's programs, we are implementing changes to our registration process to better serve each of our campers and the families who are looking to participate in HoneyRock's programs. Having such high and vested interest in our summer camp programs is a good thing. So, to serve the increasing volume of registrants and interest, we are aiming to create more opportunities for more campers to register for our program offerings. 

Summer Camp at HoneyRock Registration Updates beginning November 2024

  • For those who attended a 2024 HoneyRock Summer Camp Program, registration opens on November 6, 2024 at 9:00 am CST.
  • For those who did not attend summer camp during the 2024 season, registration will open on November 15, 2024 at 9:00 am CST.
  • At the time of registration, you may only register each individual camper for one program/session. One camper cannot be registered for more than one session.

Payment and Camper Scholarship Updates:

  • Camper families will be automatically opted into a monthly payment plan at the time of registration. Your payment plan will conclude with a final payment on May 15th, when balances are due to be paid in full.
  • The registration deposit for Intro Camp remains $150. The deposit for 12-Day Residential Camp, Advance Camp, Voyageur and Catalyst is $250. Deposits are non-refundable.
  • Program fees are fully refundable until March 15th. After March 15th, only 50% of the program fee is refundable. After May 15th, your program fee is non-refundable.
  • The Financial Aid application will no longer be a part of the registration process, it will be a separate form shared with you after you've registered that you will need to complete outside of registration. 
  • If you plan to apply for a Camper Matching Scholarship or a Needs-Based Scholarship, the application will be available on our Financial Aid webpage beginning on November 15th.
  • Camper Matching Scholarships are only available to 6-Day Intro Campers, 12-Day Res. Campers, and Advance Campers.
  • Scholarships are available on a first come, first served basis, while funds are available. We encourage you to apply early. Your payment plan amount will automatically adjust when your camper’s scholarship is awarded.

 

 

Making Camp Affordable

Program Costs and Pricing Model

Actual v. Adjusted: Catalyst

We're asking Catalyst campers and their families to choose between paying the actual price and the adjusted price. The actual price reflects the real costs needed to deliver a full HoneyRock Catalyst 1 or 2 experience. We recognize that some Catalyst campers and their families cannot afford the actual price at this time but still desire to come to HoneyRock for the summer. If that is the case, you can opt for the adjusted price.

This ability to choose between the actual and the adjusted prices is made possible through the generosity of contributions to our annual fund drive and camper scholarship endowments. We invite you to pay the price that is most suitable for you and your family at this time. The price you choose to pay will not influence the experience you (your camper) will receive.

Actual v. Adjusted: Voyageur and 2:22 Programs

If you are financially prepared to pay the difference between the actual and adjusted cost of the 2:22 or Voyaguer camper programs, we invite you to donate an amount of your choice towards the difference between the adjusted and actual program costs. You can do this during the registration process after logging into or creating your account.

Your contribution towards the difference of actual and adjusted prices helps cover the actual operating costs of these two programs (Voyageur and 2:22) which provide unique wilderness experiences to HoneyRock high school campers. 


Here are several ways to make camp more affordable: 

Explore Financial Assistance & Scholarships

  1. Camper Matching Program 

    For Residential Camp and Advance Camp, HoneyRock will match what a camper honestly earns and contributes to their camper fee. More detailed information: Camper Matching Program

  2. Payment Plans

    We will work with you to create an individual plan that works for you. See more detailed information about payment plans

  3. Camperships (Camper Scholarships)

    Further financial assistance is available to those who demonstrate a need through various camperships (camper scholarships). We have a specific campership fund for children of single mothers. Generous donors have given money to make HoneyRock possible for you and your family. Please, do not hesitate to apply for these funds.

  4. Support of Others

    Approximately 25% of our camper families receive funds from their grandparents, other relatives, or churches. Consider who can aid in sending your camper to camp this summer! More information can be found by following the link above "Expore Financial Assistance & Scholarships". 

If you have further questions about program pricing updates or pricing models for high school programs, you can contact honeyrock.register@wheaton.edu or call the HoneyRock Registration Office at 630-752-5420.
