Some Top Rhode Island Band Camps offer rigorous daily band training and lots of intensive band experience. Other great Rhode Island Camps offer band as an elective or recreational activity with much less training and intensity.

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.
