She has berths for 49 people overnight, and with 17 crew, a low camper to crew ratio creates a safe and fun environment. The ship is equipped with a steel hull, 3 masts, with square sails on all three masts, 20 sails totaling 14,000 square feet, and 7 miles of rope and wire. The engines run on a bio-diesel blend, and the ship is equipped with a modern galley (on-board kitchen), central air, an on-deck science lab, a library and wheel-chair accessibility above and below decks.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Realizing that families have differing abilities to pay, Camp Aldersgate is offering a voluntary 3-tier pricing program to accommodate differing financial needs.

Tier 1: Represents the price closest to the actual cost of the Aldersgate experience, and helps to ensure the sustainability of Camp Aldersgate. This is the ‘default’ rate in the registration system. This helps us to make sure that our program and staff are top quality, and helps us pay our staff a living wage.

Tier 2: Thanks to the efforts of our hard-working volunteers, we are able to offer this partially subsidized rate, which helps to account for more of the actual cost of the camp program. Please choose this rate if your family has the need for a subsidized rate.

Tier 3: The lowest price is subsidized by donations and other revenue sources. Choose this option if your camper needs financial assistance to experience Camp Aldersgate. If you cannot afford either of the higher amounts, please pay this amount.

No proof of financial need is required for your tier selection – it’s all the same great camp experience! The tier that you choose is up to you, and tier choices are kept confidential.

As always, Camp Aldersgate maintains a policy that no camper is turned away because of inability to pay for camp. Please contact the camp office or visit our webiste if you need additional assistance.

Camp Aldersgate counselors are committed to children and youth and enjoy working with them. Some are former campers; others have heard about Aldersgate through their colleges or from friends and other camping circles. Our staff is carefully screened and chosen from applicants from all over the world. Each staff member is personally interviewed and must submit to a criminal and sex offender background check along with a thorough reference check before they are allowed to work with our campers.

All staff complete an intensive two-week training at the beginning of the summer where they learn to help campers with issues such as dealing with bullies, homesickness, child abuse, and safety. They also become certified in First Aid and CPR as well as blood borne pathogens. Lifeguards, ropes courses staff, and food services staff undergo additional training in their areas. We bring in professionals from various fields to instruct our staff, and summer leadership staff attend numerous professional trainings throughout the year to ensure that Camp Aldersgate’s safety standards, facilities, administration, and programs are not only current but leaders in the camping industry.

Aldersgate’s year-round staff are also recognized as leaders in their fields, providing training and leadership in regional and national settings.
