Camp Payment Options

Camp registrations made in person or on the phone will require a deposit of half the camp price at the time of registration. (The exception to this is Fiddle Camp and Extended Hours, which must be paid for in full at the time of registration.) Anyone who makes a partial payment in this way will be responsible for making a balance payment by June 1, 2017. All camp registrations initiated AFTER June 1, 2017 must be paid in full at the time of registration.

Camp registrations made online will have several options for payment:

  • payment in full at the time of registration
  • deposit of half at the time of registration, with an autopayment on June 1
  • deposit of half at the time of registration, with a purchaser-initiated balance due by June 1
  • monthly autopay (from the day after your registration through June 1)

Financial Aid Information

Financial Aid is available for all Old Town School summer camps. Applications are available as hard copies only, beginning on December 1, 2016. You may pick up an application at the front desk of any of our three locations: 4544 N. Lincoln Avenue, 4545 N. Lincoln Avenue, or 909 W. Armitage Avenue. Please ask specifically for the Summer Camp Financial Aid application, as it is in a different format (and color!) than our other financial aid applications.

To submit your application, you'll need to drop off your completed form during regular business hours with an attached copy of your most recent 1040 tax return (for proof of household income). Once your application for financial aid is received, you can expect to hear from us within two weeks. If you qualify for financial aid, we’ll let you know your award amount at that time. Financial aid for summer camp has rolling admission, and will be distributed to qualifying families on a first-come, first-serve basis. Since financial aid is awarded only as long as funds are available, we strongly encourage you to apply by March 1, 2017.
