How much does it cost?
Thanks to support from the Association of Former Students, the camp fee for 2012 is $125. The fee covers the cost of transportation, meals, lodging, as well as a camp t-shirt! We will also be offering full need-based grants to cover this cost for 50 campers. In order to apply for a grant, complete the grant application.
What should I bring?
Camp Cho-Yeh is not a resort. There will be bugs, dirt, and trees. It will also be very HOT. However, the cabins and meeting halls are equipped with A/C and running water. Bring casual clothes for two days, a sleeping bag/bed linens, toiletries (aka Deodorant), a swimsuit, a flashlight, bugspray, and comfortable shoes. You also might want to bring rain gear just in case. Sorry, no personal automobiles allowed.
