FAQs

When can I apply?!

The link to the application will be available starting February 15th. We'll accept applications for 2 weeks and then do a first round of application reviews. If there are more applications than spaces in any given session we'll use a lottery system to determine who gets into camp. To apply click HERE.

How are you handling COVID-safety? 

In many ways! Because the COVID reality is ever-shifting, we'll provide more detail as summer gets closer.

The current plan is to rely heavily on pre-camp testing as well as vaccinations (not required, but strongly recommended) as well as small group sizes. All of our camp staff will be vaccinated and tested regularly throughout the summer. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to Caitlin at summercamp@ekone.org.

Are you still offering scholarships?

Most definitely! When you apply for a summer session you can indicate that you will be applying for a scholarship and will not be asked to pay a deposit. 

Why are there two different costs for each program?

We are working with new pricing model that more accurately reflects the true "costs" of running programs at Ekone. We strive to keep our programs affordable, and the "Base Rate" covers the cost of facilities, food, staff time and basic operations. However, there’s a lot more to the Ekone experience and mission, like providing scholarships and equitable access to our programs, offering support to the Native people whose historic lands we occupy, protecting and stewarding this precious ecosystem, and special projects to care for place and community. This is where the "Restoration Rate" comes in. Those who are financially able to help "restore" social and ecological equity at Ekone are invited to join us in sharing abundance. (We consider the difference between base and restoration rate "paying it forward." The IRS considers it a tax-deductible donation, and we'll provide you with a tax receipt to that effect!)​​
