-Every day, each program will begin with Morning/Afternoon Circle where campers get to showcase their latest dance moves, sing, share announcements or just wave hello, whatever they are comfortable doing!
-Additionally, every program will have one hour in the pool each day; 20 minutes will be devoted to swim instruction and the remaining time will be “free swim”.
-Campers bring their own lunch to Camp (for full-day sessions), preferably one that does not require a microwave as we are not always on campus for lunch.
-Camp provides water, lemonade and a snack at the end of the day (if time permits).
-Bournelyf offers a 4:1 camper/staff ratio for our Expedition & Alumni programs and a 3:1 camper/staff ratio for our Trailblazer programs. We are unable to accept campers who require more extensive supervision, have had incidents of physical aggression and/or are not toilet-trained.
-Campers who are new to Camp, or who have only attended for one year, are eligible to attend two total weeks of camp initially; however if space permits they may sign up for additional sessions after their initial 2 weeks.

Want to Learn More About Camp?

Prospective Camp families are invited to attend our Spring Open House on Saturday, April 20, 2024 to learn more about Bournelyf. All first year campers are required to attend prior to Camp. The purpose is to show you the camp grounds, provide our staff the chance to meet you and your camper, and answer any questions that you may have.  It also serves as a great opportunity to make sure that camp is a good fit for your camper. All interested first year Campers can sign up for our 2024 Open House here.


If your Camper is unable to attend the Open House on Saturday, April 20th, please contact the directors at to schedule an alternate date to visit Camp. Stay tuned for more information about the April 20th Open House. We can't wait to meet you!

Tuition/Fees/Late Charges
A deposit of 25% of tuition is required to reserve your campers spot. Please note that we cannot reserve any spots without the 25% payment that accompanies the application. 3 additional installments of 25% of the tuition are due May 1, June 1 and 1 week prior to the start of camp. We are happy to provide a receipt, upon request, if you wish to pursue reimbursement from a 3rd party. Please note that Alumni vacations may have adjusted payment schedules, depending on the dates of the trip. 

Please note that the tuition fee covers a portion of actual program expenses. Through fundraising efforts and the generosity of our donors we are able to offer our programs at this reduced rate.


  • Cancellation 1 month before the first day of the session in which your child enrolled results in a refund of 50% of tuition.

  • Cancellation 2 weeks before the first day of the session results in a refund of 25% of tuition.

  • There are no refunds for cancellation within 2 weeks of the first day of the Camp session.

  • There are also no refunds in tuition for voluntary withdrawal during any camp session, for late arrivals or early departures, or for campers who are asked to withdraw for behavior reasons. Exceptions to this policy may be made only by the Executive Director of the Camp, at their discretion.


We reserve the right to suspend or dismiss a camper in our sole discretion for harmful or disruptive behavior (subject to applicable regulatory requirements) if we do not have adequate expertise or resources for the child’s needs, for violation of Camp policies or any other reason we determine to be in the best interest of the Camp. Suspension or dismissal may be with or without notice.

Bournelyf 3rd Party Pay Policy

  • When a Camper indicates that they will be using 3rd Party Pay (Waivers, FSS, or other funding), the camper’s Supports Coordinator or whoever will be responsible for processing the payment to camp will be contacted by the Assistant Director.

  • Families will be responsible for paying a 25% deposit at the time of the application. Provided that your request to utilize 3rd Party Pay is approved by May 1, 2024, no additional out-of-pocket expenses will be required. Please note that this is different than in years past.

  • Once funding from the 3rd Party is received, Bournelyf will issue a reimbursement check to the family for their initial 25% deposit.

  • If approval for 3rd Party Pay is NOT received by your camper's Supports Coordinator by May 1, 2024, then families will be responsible for paying the full tuition amount. Families will still be reimbursed once 3rd Party Payment is received, but they will just be responsible for more upfront.

Tuition Assistance

Bournelyf recognizes that individual circumstances differ. Each year we are able to make some additional funding available for campers who otherwise might not be able to participate in the Camp’s programs due to financial hardship. If tuition assistance is desired, please indicate that on the application. The Assistant Director will then contact you individually to discuss your situation. You may also wish to contact your County MH/IDD or school district to determine whether they have monies available to assist your camper. We advise you to apply promptly, however, please make sure to indicate whether your camper’s participation is dependent on county or school district support on the application. Please DO NOT apply for Tuition Assistance if you are relying on a 3rd party to pay the tuition. Tuition Assistance is for families paying tuition out of pocket.
