Enrollment & Tuition: Prices include all meals, lodging and educational experiences. Transportation costs to and from the NatureBridge campus are the responsibility of the participant.
We believe all students should have the opportunity to explore and learn in our national park classrooms. To make our Summer Backpacking programs financially feasible for all families, we use a tiered pricing system.
How does it work?
Determine which price your family is able to pay for your Summer Backpacking program and select this tier when you checkout on our registration page. Your choice is confidential and will have no effect on your child’s experience.
Thank you for choosing the price that is right for your family’s circumstances and helps us to serve as many students as possible.
Tier A represents the full price of a Summer Backpacking program, covering the costs of our experienced educators, gear, food, transportation and all the other things that makes these experiences truly life-changing. If you are able to pay this price, please do so. Thank you.
Tier B represents a partially subsidized price in which we seek additional funding from grants and donors to cover our costs. We appreciate your dedication to providing rewarding, immersive experiences to your child(ren).
Tier C We want all students to have the ability to attend a highly impactful backpacking program in our national parks. If your family needs financial assistance beyond Tier B, please apply using our online application form. Our online application form is closed for Summer 2020.
