Camp Smitty is a non-profit program proud to offer an exceptional camping for all children regardless of financial situation.

We are committed to ensuring that no child misses camp for financial reasons. We offer a simple and fair cost plan that allows us to continue helping as many families as possible benefit from a great camping experience for their child. The three levels are also included on the registration form, where you just check off the level that best applies to you.

Level 3 Full-Fee Cost $1,200 This level is for families that can afford this amount, or where an agency / sponsor / foundation is covering the full cost on behalf of the camper and/or family.
