1. Register early.

Many camps, including day and overnight camps, offer a discount if you register in advance.

2. Ask about a sibling discount.

If you are sending little brother or sister along, ask if there is a price break.

3. Scholarships.

You can find scholarship information on camp websites. Be sure to note application deadlines.

4. Payment plans.

While these may not equate to discounts, payment plans often make camp expenses easier on a family’s budget.
