How much does it cost?
Our primary goal is to serve the families with the greatest financial AND summer childcare needs (very low-income families who have no other summer childcare options available to them). We are happy to serve all families, but those with fewer financial and/or summer childcare needs will pay more. Here’s a pricing explanation.

No. But we do provide a light snack around 3:30.
Do I need to provide lunch for my child?
Not unless your child has special food requirements (e.g. allergies or food intolerances). We partner with Tarrant Area Food Bank, who supplies our breakfast and lunch meals.
You are welcome to pack a lunch for your child but please keep in mind that we do not allow any soda, chips or candy unless you bring enough for every child.
Who may receive a meal?
While our camp is tailored to ages 6-13, any child from the community may enter our facility for free breakfast and/or lunch. The meal must be eaten on-site and the child will be asked to leave once meal time is over.
There is a chance we will go out of town for a week or part of a week, can I get a refund?
We cannot prorate weekly costs. Please note that while we understand emergencies happen, we have dedicated this time to serve you and your family and would love for your child to come to Camp FUSE as much as possible. We work hard to ensure we have enough staff and volunteers available. Therefore, we will not issue any refunds for 'weeks missed.'
Also, while we do not expect to send your child home, please note that: we do not provide refunds for any reason, not even for expulsions due to discipline issues. It is very important to talk to your child about their expected behavior and participation. We want everyone to grow from this experience and enjoy their time at Camp FUSE.
How and when do I make my payment?
Payment is due by the Thursday before each week (if paying weekly). Payments are either online through our site, or by cash/check at our Wednesday parent meetings.
What happens if I'm late picking up my child?
A $1 per minute late fee will be assessed after 3:10 pm (fee will not exceed $20). If your child is not enrolled in Extended Fun program or you have not notified the camp staff that you are running late, your child will be taken to the police department at 3:30pm. The late fee must be paid the next morning before dropping off your child for another day at camp.
The same extended late times apply for Extended Fun.
Will my child be required to participate in all activities?
Yes, we work hard to ensure that we have age, ability and interest appropriate activities for your child. All activities, including chapel are required. It helps build your child’s socialization skills, confidence and character. We all learn, engage and grow together over the summer.
How should my child dress?
Comfortably! We do not recommend any new clothing items and we require closed-toed shoes. ABSOLUTELY NO FLIP-FLOPS. Children in Flip Flops may not enter camp. This is for their safety. Campers also are to wear a t-shirt, no tank tops or spaghetti straps.
I may need to contact my child during the day, can they bring their cell phone?
While we understand the need to be able to each your child, we do ask that all electronic devices (phones, games, headphones, etc.) be left at home. Your child will not have time for those items and we are NOT responsible for anything that is lost, stolen or damaged.
Will there be any field trips?
No, all activities will take place on our campus.
