Hello, Bauercrest Families…
There’s no denying that this pandemic has been challenging for everyone. The fact that Bauercrest couldn’t open in 2020 for the first time in 90 years was crushing for all of us. But through it all, we were supported by a group of men and women determined to ensure that we’d be back even stronger in 2021.
Thanks to our Board and our Alumni, we raised more funds than ever in a year of no camp. We opened in 2021 with more campers than we’ve had in 10 years, and more new campers than we’ve had EVER! We kept Covid out of our Bauercrest bubble for the entire summer. But in doing so, we had to make some sacrifices.
Aside from not being able to offer field trips or inter-camp tournaments to our current campers, we also weren’t able to offer tours or overnights to our prospective campers. There is no better way to get a feel for camp than visiting in season. Videos and home visits are great supplements, but nothing compares to being able to see, smell, and feel the energy on the Hillside during those seven magical weeks of camp.
Without the opportunity for our prospective campers to witness it firsthand, we are relying more than ever on our current families and Alumni to fill in the gaps. It should come as no surprise that word-of-mouth referrals are how we get most of our new campers. Parents talking, kids talking, Alumni talking… no one can explain the magic of Bauercrest better than those who’ve lived it. Although we already had a very successful referral program for our existing families, we thought we’d encourage even more word of mouth by sweetening the deal for our new camper families as well!
Thanks once again to our incredibly generous Alumni, who will stop at nothing to ensure that as many boys as possible are able to experience an unforgettable summer on the Hill, we are now able to offer a referral structure in which our referred families receive the same discount as the families who referred them!
With that said, we are thrilled to introduce the structure of our 2022 Referral Plan:
- If you refer one camper who enrolls**, you both receive 20% off tuition*.
- If you refer two campers who enroll**, you both receive 33% off tuition*
- If you refer 3 or more campers who enroll**, you all receive 50% off tuition*
**New campers must be enrolled in a paid session; does not include Training Camp.
*Discount off one camper’s tuition per family.
This referral structure is only being offered for our 2022 season, so we hope you’ll take advantage of this incredible opportunity!
