Payment Options

Vision

Outdoor Education Adventures (OEA) envisions a future where opportunities for environmental education and outdoor experiences are readily accessible and affordable for all ages and all demographics.

Payment Options

Families have several options for paying for camp. You may pay online via Paypal, or you may send a check (details are in the registration page). You may also request to make payments over time or for a sliding-scale tuition adjustment; please see below for details on that option.

How to Request to Make Payments or for a Tuition Adjustment

Prior to registering for camp, please complete and return OEA’s Request for Adjusted Tuition or Payment Plan. You may also print a copy of the application and mail it to OEA, 1382 NW Countryside Ct, McMinnville, OR 97128. Recipients will be given individual codes to use at checkout. (We are in the process of rebuilding this option; please contact us for assistance in the meantime).

Request Deadline

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.

Eligibility

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, and no more than 80% off.

  • Even if you are eligible to request assistance, we cannot guarantee that sufficient resources will be available to fulfill your request.
  • 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 for every OEA event. Applicants may be limited to one week of adjusted camp tuition per season.
