Scholarship Information

Partial Fee

You do not have to apply for this option – it is available to all families that need a reduced fee. Thanks to donations from individuals, corporations, community organizations and through fundraising events, DYF is happy to offer a subsidized fee.

Actual Fee

This fee represents all actual costs associated with operating the program; including insurance, utilities, full-time and seasonal personnel, staff training, food, program supplies, transportation, facilities, and maintenance.  By choosing to pay the Actual Fee, DYF can help send more kids and families to camp.

Scholarship Request

Financial assistance is available to families who qualify and enables those with hardships to pay as little as the registration deposit to attend any program. Click for more Scholarship Information!

Fundraise Your Camp Fee

You can also create a personal fundraising page at www.firstgiving.com/dyf to raise the camp fee after you register for camp.

There is a $150 registration deposit required of all campers, please contact the office at (925) 680-4994 ext. 105 if you require special payment arrangements.

Refund Policy

DYF will refund $100 of the $150 deposit ($50 non-refundable) for cancellations received in writing or by phone 14 days prior to the start of the session. Thereafter, no portion of the deposit is refundable, unless it is for a documented medical reason.
