Anvil Price Increase FAQ
Note on pricing increases for Summer 2024
The Board has made the difficult, but necessary decision to implement a larger increase to the camper price of camp for the 2024 summer season. While we attempted to keep camp fee increases minor from 2019 until 2023, the increase was needed to keep camp operations sustainable for many years to come.
The new prices will be as follows:
- Full Price Summer 2024 = $695/camper (plus GST)
- Early Bird Price Summer 2024 = $675/camper (plus GST) *Available until May 1st, 2024
- Weekend Camps = Pricing coming soon
The reason for the increases
As many have likely experienced, costs have been rising and Anvil has seen and felt these increases to a large magnitude. To better illustrate this, Operations costs in 2023 are up over $260,000 from 2019. **It is important to note that this does not include capital projects or fundraising costs.
Among other increases when compared to 2019 we saw the following amounts increase:
- $69,500 Transportation on the Britannia
- $50,700 Food Costs
- $39,500 Fuel Costs
- $55,700 Employee Costs and Salary Increases (Summer, Part-time and Full-Time Staff)
- $28,700 Insurance Premiums Increases
- $16,000+ Additional Expenses
How much of the cost does camper fees cover?
In 2019, camp-related revenue and fees covered 60% of the operational costs, where in 2023 this
amount was under 50%. This means that donations cover the rest in addition to capital upgrades and
fundraising done for Anvil.
Why are the prices going up?
Simply put, camp is more substantially more expensive to run. When compared to 2019, the 2023
operation costs are up over $260,000* to run, even though 2019 had more campers than 2023.
* Note that this is only operational costs and does not include fundraising or major capital
How did the new price get decided on?
We aim to keep a similar level of camper fee to cost as we had pre-pandemic. To do this a 60% camper fee to operational cost is our target for pricing.
What is my child/family getting for this cost?
As we strive to do each summer, the increase in cost will allow Anvil to continue to provide an incredible camp experience where campers will get to enjoy the beauty of God’s creation while learning about the Gospel.
Does this money go to your rebuilding projects?
No – the cost of the increase is to keep pace with the increases in costs to run the camp’s operations to put on camp each summer. The rebuilding projects are funded through donations.
Does this affect your sponsorship program?
No – we will continue to run our sponsorship as we have done in the past; our goal is to provide a camp experience for those from all backgrounds and financial means.
How do I qualify for the sponsorship program?
We encourage all those who are looking into sponsorship to check out our sponsorship section on the

Can I attend multiple weeks of camp as a camper?
Can I attend two weeks at Anvil as a Camper? We want as many children and teens as possible to have the “Anvil Camp Experience”. Therefore each camper is only allowed to register for one week of camp each summer. Sometimes individual weeks of the summer may have some extra spots which allow some to attend a second time. If you are interested in attending a second week, please contact the office by clicking here and we will take your request into consideration. Naturally, we are unable to guarantee a second spot until closer to the start of your requested “extra” camp. If spots are available we will contact you approximately two weeks prior to camp. Thank you!
Do you have a family rate?
We have a special family rate. You will pay full price for the first two children, but every child after that will be 40% off. This discount is automatically applied when you register all children at the same time. This discount is not available for friends. If you have any questions, please contact us in the office.
When will I get a call from my cabin leader?
Because we will be filling cabins right up to the end – you should expect a call just prior to camp starting. If you still haven’t heard from them and camp is starting within 2 days – call the office.
Are there really Hougars at camp?
You’ll have to wait and see.
