Fee for Programs:

Aaron’s Acres requires a $30.00 nonrefundable application fee, which is payable at the time of submitting the application.

Our School Year fees are based on rates given to us by our government funding sources (BHDS, SAM, CMU). They are determined by the staff to child ratio need for your child to best be successful during the program. If you are a self -paying family, you will be provided your rate after we receive your child’s application and determine the ratio that will best suit the needs of your child. *These rates do not include the $30.00 nonrefundable application fee.

Funding through BHDS (formerly MHMR), CMU and SAM must be approved and in your budget prior to the start of the summer camp program for your space to be reserved. Please contact your Supports Coordinator to confirm the number of units your child has available.

For self-paying families, the rates are the same as those for families receiving funding from BHDS, CMU, SAM or other county agencies.

At Aaron’s Acres, we have always been committed to providing financial assistance to those families who have needed to explore other payment options. It is our hope to continue to do so for this coming summer.

A scholarship request form needs to be completed by September 10, 2017, as well as the program application form. Follow this link to the Scholarship Form!
