Legos camp is 450.00 a week here. Staffing, insurance, space rental or if they have their own property, taxes, overhead costs. Maintenance, , field trips, materials, administration, and profit. Town rec camp is cheapest thing around here.
Held in the playgrounds of element. Schools, staffed by high school kids, 9-4, two weeks is 250. But it doesn't work for many working parents, its more of a diversion for kids of sahms.

If you think regular camp fees are high, imagine how much camp fees are for children with special needs. I have 2 sn boys.

 DD is going to a 4 day over nightcamp and it is $180. I think that is pretty cheap though.
