Contrary to previous reports, we are happy to announce that it is very likely that construction at our venue will not be happening during Camp Fareta 2018. Yay!

Registering for Camp Fareta 2018 – August 13-20

Hey everyone! Please read the following information carefully – it will help you move through the registration process more easily. If you already know the drill, just jump to the registration options below.

We encourage you to register early for the best rates and/or to apply for work-exchange to help you cover the costs of camp. We need lots of help to make camp happen smoothly, so if you want to save some money, sign up for work-exchange. Working together is also a great way to get connected and get to know new people at camp.

In order to make the best use of the space we have at camp and keep our systems running smoothly, there are various packages that have a lower daily rate than what you would pay for a “custom” package. If the packages don't work for your schedule, you are welcome to sign up for whatever days work best for you.

Rates are the same price for a tent (bring your own) or cabin. A 50% deposit is required to reserve your spot. Please note: even if we have your information in the system, you are not considered registered until we have your deposit. Until we have your payment, you may be bumped from the list or may end up in a later (higher) price category.

If you show up without having preregistered and camp is already full, you may be turned away. This is because there is a cap, set by the venue, on the number of participants we are allowed to have. The chef also needs to know ahead of time how many campers we will have so she can plan quantities accurately; if you show up unannounced, we may ask you to go to the end of the food line, to let those who preregistered eat first. For these reasons we strongly encourage preregistration.

Children 3-12 must be registered by August 1 to guarantee space in Kids Camp. A higher rate will be charged for children who are not pre-registered. Children under 3 are free of charge and no childcare is provided.

Changing/Adding Days: Days added on-site will be charged at the "regular" day rate even if your original registration was in the "early" period. If you pre-register for a certain number of days and then decide at camp to decrease your number of days, you will be charged $35 per day to cover food and administrative fees for your cancelled days.

So let's get to it!

Rates are all-inclusive – all the classes and evening events, all the meals, a bed in a cabin or your own tent, evening events, hangin’ at the lake, and all the fun you can handle!

Need a break on the fees? Write to to ask about work-exchange and/or a partial scholarship.
