The entire family comes to this week of camp and the parents and siblings get lessons specifically designed to meet their needs. Mentors volunteer to help with the campers during the day. The cost for a SWOC Camper is $395 (includes the $50 deposit) and $50 per family member who attends with the Camper.¬†
