Future Year Admissions
Read this page for information on tuition and cost of attendance, financial aid, and how to get on our priority waitlist for future year programs (Summer 2023 and beyond).
Tuition & Cost of Attendance
Cost of attendance includes tuition, deposit, an enrollment fee of $200, and the cost of outdoor gear for your child. Families are responsible for purchasing outdoor gear for their child. Tuition, deposit, and fees are non-refundable nor transferable. If a family chooses to send their child to BOPN for fewer days per week or hours per day than scheduled, the cost remains the same.
Enrollment in one of our programs is a significant commitment. We determine staffing needs, teacher salaries, and operating costs based on our enrollments. It is for this reason that tuition, deposit, and fees are non-refundable nor transferable. We request that families please wait to enroll in our summer programs until they have had all their questions answered.
Get on Our Priority Waitlist!
Step 1: Inquire
Submit our interest form to let us know your desired location and program. A member of our admissions team will get back to you to answer any initial questions you may have.
Step 2: Visit Us
The best way to learn about our programs is to come see them in action! We ask that families complete a virtual or in-person tour prior to applying for the waitlist. We hold regular tours at least once per month at each site. We also hold occasional virtual tours for families living out of state or abroad or for those who cannot otherwise attend in person. We regularly update our interest form with upcoming tour dates.
Step 3: Submit an Application
Submit a waitlist application and $50 application fee to secure a spot on our priority waitlist. Once we receive your application and fee, we will send confirmation of your waitlist status.
We offer income-based financial aid for families who need it. If financial aid, in the form of an enrollment fee reduction or waiver, deposit payment schedule, or tuition reduction, will enable your family to participate in our programs, please call or email our Director of Admissions. We will explain the process and provide you with a brief financial aid application.
After you submit an interest form, we will get back to you promptly to let you know whether there available spots in your program of interest, or if not, whether we offer other programs that might fit your needs.
In the case of a program being full, families may submit a brief application and $50 application fee to be placed on our waitlist. Submission of an application and inclusion on our waitlist does not guarantee admission to our programs.
We strive to achieve diversity of age, gender, race and ethnicity, among other factors, whenever possible. Diversity, equity, and inclusion; dedication to our current and alumni families; and chronological order of inquiry are the primary factors that guide our selection processes when number of applications exceed number of open spots in a given program.
