We offer a "regular" camp that runs from Thursday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. Optionally there's an abbreviated "weekend-only" camp that runs from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. We also offer discounted "Spouse Rates" that cover everything but the classes (i.e. room, board, concerts, and evening activities are all included) for half price. In our new location we are able to provide "commuter" registration for people wishing to stay off-site. For this year's specific tuition costs see "Cost" on the Registration Notes page or see the registration form.
We offer work/trade positions which reduce the tuition by $100 in exchange for up to 5 hours of work at camp or $200 in exchange for up to 10 hours of work. The work/trade positions are given out in a first-come first-served basis. Unfortunately, all our work/trade positions for 2018 are now filled. Here are some details.
Supported by the generosity of our students we have a scholarship program for people who could not afford to come to camp without financial aid and for whom a work/trade position would not suffice. If you want to come to camp but simply can't afford it, consider an ABC Scholarship.
People who plan to stay in their campers, tents or RVs on site must register as resident students. We are charged the same for all residents, regardless of where they stay.
ABC offers only two attendance plans - Regular Camp (Thurs afternoon through Sunday lunch) and a Weekend-Only option (Fri. lunch through Sunday lunch). We can NOT offer discounts for alternative attendance options (such as Friday and Saturday only, Saturday and Sunday only, etc.).
