In a majority of American households, money as a subject can be a tense one. Even in the households of our Headmasters, budget and spending is never far from the surface of thought. For this reason, a system of alternative currency, very much in the style of Hogwarts’s “Points” system, offers further opportunity to campers and students. No one deserves to be limited by factors beyond their control. Accessibility extends beyond disability into every facet of our lives.
All campers in all situations with all accommodations are required to participate in the maintenance of camp via “kapers,” routine chores such as keeping a tidy living space, and emptying trash bins. Additional tasks are ranked for intensity, and their completion earns the camper a wage that can be applied to commissary purchases, camp tuition, or saved for special events such as trips to movies and plays, and (we hope) places like the Renaissance Faire in Todd Mission, Texas.
Below is a chart showing the hourly value of some Kapers.
Donations of gently used clothing will have value estimated on the spot.
Donations of supplies (detergent, markers, new socks, etc) value at 150% purchase cost
Donations of food value at 120% purchase cost
Cultural Literacy Program
Donations of books, magazines, movies, shows, music, and similar media that is not already in our library will knock at least $5 off your weekly tuition, depending on the content and condition. We’d like our library to be as complete and extensive as possible.
