The cost to run camp is $675 but with the support of donors and Mayo Clinic Health System we are able to offer camp for less. Your tuition includes 8 days of sleep-away camp and journals for the campers to use during camp and afterwards. 


We are able to provide three tier price options that you can select based on your personal situation. These do not require any additional paperwork. 


$325 Tier C: This option is for those who need a discounted rate but may not qualify for financial assistance.

$500 Tier B: This price is for families who need to adjust down slightly from the true cost.

$675 Tier A:  This price most accurately reflects the cost of camp, taking into account basic upkeep, depreciation, and facility/program improvements.


A $50 non-refundable deposit is required upon registration. This deposit is part of the camp fee, it is not a separate payment; it is simply a partial payment of the total fee.



Financial Assistance

We believe everyone should have an opportunity to experience Camp Wabi. We will work with families to make this happen. Need is based on a sliding fee scale, shown below. Percentage is financial assistance given.

How do I apply?

During the online registration process you will be asked to select a tier price. Select the financial assistance option.
