We want every kid to have an opportunity to go to camp.

Sometimes a family just needs to be able to make payments in chunks. Sometimes they need just a little bit taken off of the tuition price. Sometimes they need a lot. We understand there are many reasons why families may need assistance, and a variety of assistance that may be needed (we’ve been there!). Finances shouldn’t be a barrier to having the camp experience. Below you will find payment options and assistance plans. If you need to, we hope you will take advantage of them to give your kid an opportunity to go to camp.

Tuition Assistance and Payment Plan Options

Please complete and return our Request for Adjusted Tuition or Payment Plan Form.  This is an honor-based, sliding-scale financial assistance program. You may also print a copy of the form and mail it. We will contact you once we receive your request. If you have other barriers, please contact us; we really want to be of assistance.

In addition to completing the Request for Adjusted Tuition or Payment Plan Form please complete the registration for the desired program. You will be able to register and select the Pay later/Check payment option. In the Additional Information section of the registration form tell us that you are requesting financial assistance. If you have any questions please contact us

Payment Options

Families have several options for paying for camp. You may pay online via Paypal at the time of registration, or you may select the Pay later/Check payment option. You may also request to make payments over time or for a sliding-scale tuition adjustment.

Helping Families in Need Is Good for the Whole Community

When we have funding for financial assistance, we want families to take advantage of it. Your application for tuition adjustment empowers us to raise funds for OEA programs. Documenting the community need for financial assistance enables us to develop stronger grant proposals and more impactful donation/sponsorship requests. 

Mailing Address for Checks or Hard Copies of Payment Adjustment Requests

Please send paper correspondence to:

1382 NW Countryside Ct.
McMinnville, OR 97128

Request Deadline

The earlier you make your request, the better. Tuition adjustment requests must be received by OEA at least two weeks before the start of the associated camp. Payments-over-time requests must be made at least three months prior to the start of camp. Final payments must be made at least two weeks before the start of camp.


Tuition adjustments are awarded on a sliding-scale and honor system. Requests are awarded as possible on a first-come, first-served basis. Please request an amount based on what you can afford to contribute to your child’s camp experience, up to 80% off of full tuition. 

  • We cannot guarantee that sufficient resources will be available to fulfill your request, but we rarely turn people away.
  • OEA will contact you as soon as possible with a determination.

Meeting Demand

We strive to meet the environmental education needs of our community. Unfortunately, we are not able to fulfill all of the requests we receive and the resources we have available for tuition adjustments will vary from year to year and for every OEA event. Applicants may be limited to one week of adjusted camp tuition per season.
