You can't put a number on a per day bases IMHO, it really all depends. I'll give you a quick math situation. No camp goes into business to lose money. However, no camp owner does a camp to make money/living by any means. Camper tuition $500 x 30 campers = 15k not bad right. ok now for camp cost - 6 staff members and 2 coordinators come to the camp. Staff fee $250 per day (d1 game fee average) 4 days = 1k. Staff air and lodging double occupancy = $400 staff perdiem/parking/bag fee/gas = $100. So 1.5k per staff = 9k. So 6k left. 2 coordinators lodging/air/perdiem = 600 per = 1.2k no stipend is given. 10.2k total so far... then you have camp shirts/stickers/hats/lanyards/thumb drives, etc... $20 per camper = $600. Conference room rental space = $400 as well as tech cost $800 (projectors, screen, video, gopros, camera, either rented or bought and chopped over 5 year cycle). 12k now. Staff shirts/hats/pull overs. 2 shirts 1 pull over 1 hat every 3 years.. with embrodery is 150 per staff. $900/3 = $300 per year. 12.3 then website hosting/ webdesign/llc cost = $800. So 13.1k and then we have paypals fee of 3% on the 15k = 450 + 20 per month service fee = $690. Giving us a grand total of 13.8k in cost. total net profit is 1.2k for a camp. So the question is would you run a camp for this much $$$? I'm surprised more camp owners don't charge a hell of alot more. But they want to cover cost to give back for the passion.
So the real question should be what are you willing to give to gain the knowledge/skills/evaluations/network that they provide? If you want cheaper camps they are out there and they can be extremely good. I know when I went to my last camp I took 10 days off work went to both camps provided paid for a single room and the two day layover plus my airfare. Food all in was around $2k minus the ppl I lost out of my bank. But it changed my life and my career. Camps are an amazing vehicle to showcase both good and bad. They can give you honest feedback and make you look in a mirror really quickly. I come on here and I see guys talk about a $500 nike mask or 1k power, but no one invests. CEU are needed in every profession and even more so in ours. Good enough is not good enough! Put your foot on the gas and go get what you want. If its not at your local association then go outside of that. Go outside of your region, state, hell country if it means getting what you want and loving/learning the game. Expand the brotherhood and dont' put a pricetag on it! Ok I'll get off my soapbox now. So.... Yea.... it all depends. Your mileage may very.
