Gathering Fees

On This Page

Fees Described

Every full-time and half-Gathering attender pays three fees:

  • a Program Fee
  • a Lodging and Campus Fee
  • a Meal Plan Fee

Part-time attenders pay a daily program fee and can purchase meals on site. On campus housing is not available to Part-timers but is available to half-Gathering registrants.

Children on the floor must bring their bedroll, pillow, and towel.

Attenders may choose to purchase other items: early arrival rooms, shuttle tickets, t-shirts, and an attenders directory. Fees for these additional purchases will be posted by April, 2014.

Financial aid is available. Learn more.

New Family Discount!

A family consisting of one adult plus dependents is eligible for a 15% discount on Program Fees. Full-time students under age 24 are usually dependents. Note that a spouse or domestic partner is not considered a dependent. However, if the family consists of at least one adult and one dependent, then the discount also extends to a second adult spouse or domestic partner, Dependents are registered oldest to youngest, and third, fourth and fifth dependents will not be charged a program fee.

A grandparent plus dependents also constitute an eligible family. (“Dependent” means dependents of the grandparent, or dependents of another adult in the family who is not attending the Gathering.)

See examples and read more about the Family Discount.

If you are not eligible for a Family Discount, the first registrant indicates that s/he is "not registering with dependents" and subsequent registrants respond to the question "Which registrant are you?" with "Other adult without dependents."
