Cost and Payment
We at Camp Bighorn are extremely thankful for the opportunity to minister to students through the Journey program. We have tried to keep the cost very low so that the opportunity can be available for many people. We hope that finances will not be the deciding factor for whether or not you come to the program, so if you have any questions after reading the information on this page, please give us a call or send us an email and ask. Thanks!
Total Cost: $10,956.00
First Semester: $4,544.00
Second Semester: $6,412.00
Payment for each semester must be made by the start of each semester in order for a student to attend. Bighorn does not offer financing.
Summer Staff Scholarships: Bighorn will offer a $1000 scholarship to individuals for every year that they have served on our summer volunteer team before their time in Journey, up to a total of $2000. These individuals will have the scholarship immediately credited to their tuition, half applying to the first semester cost, and half applying to the second semester.
Matching Church Scholarships: If a church gives money to help pay for a students tuition, Bighorn will match that amount up to $1000. Half of the scholarship will be applied to the first semester’s tuition and half will be applied to the second semester’s.
Other Ways to Finance Journey
Seasonal Work: The Journey schedule is extremely full throughout the program, so it won’t be possible for a student to have a job during the program. However there will be a break starting from the week of Thanksgiving through the New Year, providing space for students to return home and find a seasonal job to help pay for the year. This combined with a summer job can go a long way in helping to pay for the year.
Fundraising: You are choosing to invest a year of your life into deepening the foundation of your faith in Christ and learning to serve him. That is a cause worth supporting! We encourage you to consider asking others to financially support you to help pay for this investment. Each Bighorn staff member is paid entirely through fundraising, so we know what it’s like. Feel free to give us a call if you’re wanting help in learning how to fund raise.
