Application and Cost Information:
Summer Camp Brochures are mailed on March 1st. They are processed in the order that they are received. We fill up fast!!  Please call or email us to be placed on our mailing list. The cost for us to conduct Summer Camp is more than $800 per week, per camper. The family's portion of that cost, for a participant to attend, is $400 per week. Empower Me Center fundraises throughout the year to make up the difference in what camp actually costs and what you are asked to pay. Your child can attend any or all of the weeks offered. The early and late arrival programs from 7:30 am to 9:00 am and 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm are an additional cost of $50/week. Families in need of financial assistance are encouraged to contact the program director. We hope you will consider joining us for a summer of fun and excitement!
