Affordable Summer Camps: Top 10 Ways to Save!


affordable summer camps - coed summer campsDid you know Pok-O-MacCready is one of the most affordable summer camps in the Northeastern United States? Our residential summer camp program and day camp program offerings exceed that of other summer camps in New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and even summer camps in Maine. If you do a little research, you’ll find our summer camp tuition is much lower than that of other summer camps with similar programs. Why is that? We like to keep our costs down in an effort to offer the most affordable summer camps to children of all ages.


affordable summer camps - summer camp for everyoneStill, affordable summer camps seem to be few and far between. Even the most reasonably priced summer camps require a significant financial commitment. We would like to see you become part of the Pok-O-MacCready family, and we don’t want finances to sway your decision. Give us a call if you have any questions and we’ll be happy to work out a flexible payment plan that works for you. 

As one of America’s most affordable summer camps, we’ve come up with our Top 10 ways to save money on your summer camp tuition:


DSC_0044 (3)10.   Visit us at a Summer Camp Fair!

Meet us in person and you’ll see what sets us apart from the other affordable summer camps on your radar.  We’ll also give you a voucher worth 10% off your total summer camp tuition! (Just for new campers only…check our homepage or contact us for summer camp fair dates and locations.)

9.   Meet us at an Open House event!

Bring your family and friends to share the afternoon with us talking about summer camp and we’ll give you a voucher worth 10% off your total summer camp tuition!  Check our homepage to see when we’re hosting an event in your town, or contact us for details. (Discount is just for new campers only.)

8.  Send a trio (or more!)  affordable summer camps - sibling discount

Finding affordable summer camps can be extra challenging if you have multiple children!  We’d like to help you out.  If you send three children to summer camp, you’ll save 10% off one child’s tuition.  It gets even better:  we take the discount off the largest tuition balance!  (For example, if two of your children attend the 3-week session, and your other child attends the 7 week session, we’ll take the discount off the 7-week tuition!)


affordable summer camps - bring a friend to summer camp7.  Bring a friend!

Do you know of someone who’s also on the search for affordable summer camps?  Bring a new friend to summer camp this season, and when they register, you’ll save 10% off one child’s summer camp tuition (that year only). 

6.  One last summer!

Our CIT program for girls and ADV (advanced) program for boys is an important finale to the summer camp career for our 15 and 16 year old campers!  This rite of passage teaches them responsibility and independence and allows them to give back to the summer camp that has been an important part of their lives.  As a send-off, you will save 20% off your child’s second (and final) year in the program.  (The discount is taken off the regular tuition rate, and cannot be combined with other offers.  The camper must have attended the first year of the CIT/ADV program to qualify.)


5. See if a scholarship is available!

In order to provide affordable summer camps to prospective campers in need, we work closely with the Adirondack Scholarship Foundation.  It is the goal of the not-for-profit Foundation to issue, on average, twenty need-based scholarships to each year.  If you would like more information about this special scholarship, please contact the Adirondack Scholarship Foundation.  Be sure to start the process early as requests from qualified applicants close on January 1st of each year.

4. Not able to commit to the full 7-week summer?  affordable summer camps - family camp

Don’t give up…just try one of our other affordable summer camp options! We also offer a 4-week session, or the short 3 week session, or our pint-sized 2 week Rookie session (for first-time 6-9 year campers only). 

3.  Get a “bite sized” version of camp (with a “bite sized” tuition!)

Want to experience camp for yourself and wrap it up into an inexpensive family vacation? Maybe you and your children are just curious to see what Pok-O-MacCready is all about, but you’re not quite ready to take the plunge with an entire summer. We have an answer for that: bring the whole family to camp! Our annual Family Camp week runs at the end of August and is all-inclusive of accommodation, meals, activities and programming, and transportation for trips outside of camp. Our rates are reasonable, and simply put:  YOU CAN’T BEAT IT!  Contact Us to get this year’s Family Camp dates and rates.

2. Work out a payment plan.

Yes, affordable summer camps still have rules about deposits and payments…but we’re also flexible. CALL US!  You’ll be delighted with the kind of magic we can work to create a flexible payment plan for your family.
