Communication Summer Camp: Tuition

Each year we review our costs to ensure that all expenses can be covered by our camper’s tuition. Tuition for 2020 COM Camp will be $450 with a $50 discount for early-bird registration. This fee covers a week (Monday – Friday; 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.) of college-level instruction; camp-hours accident insurance; course materials; use of broadcast-quality studio and equipment; Camp T-shirt; Parking permit if needed; Certificate of Achievement; a final day lunch reception and newscast screening for campers and two family members/friends with a parking permit for 1 vehicle per student for the lunch reception; and a DVD of campers’ newscasts. 

Early Bird registration requires payment in full at the time of registration. For regular registration a minimum deposit of $200.00 is due at the time of registration and must be mailed in along with all registration documents. The remaining balance is due no later than May 15th. If the tuition balance is not received by May 15th, the initial deposit minus $25.00 will be refunded and we will contact the next person on the camp waiting list.


Tuition refunds  minus a $25.00 service fee — will be given if COM Camp staff are notified by postal mail or email by 5:00 p.m., May 15th, that a camper will not be attending. After that date, and through 5:00 p.m. June 12th, refunds will be granted only if there is a potential camper on the waiting list who can fill the slot. 

If there is no student on the waiting list to fill a vacated slot, refunds will be granted only at the Director’s discretion after Friday June 5th
