What Are My Options and How Much Does This Cost?

The Don Lee Camp & Retreat Center offers one-day and multi-day Common Ground programs to suit the particular needs of your group. We strive to keep costs down for our participants to make it affordable for school groups to come and take advantage or what we have to offer. We can also break down costs into individual components in order to tailor-make a successful program that meets your curricular and budget needs. 

The cost for one-day Common Ground programs begin at $14.00 per student. If you would like to use our dining hall facilities and provide an all-you-can-eat, family style lunch you will only need to add $8.50 more per person. If you would like to plan an overnight, multi-day program, the Don Lee Camp & Retreat Center can also provide housing for everyone involved in the Common Ground experience. Participants would stay in cabins that have electricity and ceiling fans and would sleep in bunk beds. There is also access to a large bathhouse facility in the cabin area for all personal needs. The cost (which would include meals) for an overnight stays is $80.00 per student, $60.50 per adult, and $25.50 per teacher. We require that a minimum of 15 students to participate in the program and can accommodate a maximum number of 150 students during a single Common Ground program.
