More Information 

The cost of Horizons week long experience is $475. This cost includes items such as staffing, activities, equipment use, meals, lodging and facilities. Bethel Horizons is blessed to have generous donors who make this price possible. Without these donations, a week of summer camp would actually cost $625. All children at Horizons receive the same outstanding program; regardless of what you are able to pay for summer camp.

If your family is able to afford the actual cost, we welcome you to make a donation to Bethel Horizons above the $475 registration fee.
