Experience Camp

Camp Rates

Day Camp Programming costs $440 per week and Overnight Camp Programming costs $1000 per week. These rates are made possible by the generous support of our donors. Because of their support, Melwood ensures that all children are afforded the same experience and pay the same rate, regardless of the level of support they require. Register today to give your child a once-in-a-lifetime summer camp experience!

Financial Aid

We believe summer camp experiences are an important part of childhood, and we do not want any camper to miss out on that experience because of a need for financial assistance.

Camp Accomplish is pleased to offer need-based scholarships. Anyone seeking a scholarship must indicate their interest on the initial camper application.

To ensure our financial aid resources can go as far as possible, we also encourage families to seek other avenues for support. Below is a sample listing of support groups that may be contacted for possible financial support.

  • Respite Care Services/Developmental Disability Administration
  • County Departments of Social Services
  • Developmental Disabilities Administration Low Intensity Support Services (LISS) Program
  • Health Services for Children with Special Needs (DC residents)

Financial Support for HSCSN Participants

This summer, Camp Accomplish is partnering with Health Services for Children with Special Needs, Inc. (HSCSN) to offer a unique benefit for attending summer camp. If you are an HSCSN Enrollee between ages 5-18, you can apply to attend the camp week of your choice and HSCSN will cover the costs! Apply to the camp week of your choice today and we’ll handle the rest!

There are also certain tax benefits that may help defray the cost of participating in Day Camp. Please consult your tax advisor for more information.

A Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account allows parents to be reimbursed on a pre-tax basis for child care expenses, including Day Camp expenses, for qualified dependents that are necessary to allow parents to work, look for work, or to attend school full time.

The child and dependent care credit, or CDCC, is a tax credit for parents or caregivers to help cover the cost of qualified care expenses, such as day camp. The child and dependent care credit is generally worth 20% to 35% of up to $3,000 (for one qualifying dependent) or $6,000 (for two or more qualifying dependents).
