LEAD Discount Opportunities

We strive to keep the registration costs of LEAD low. Through the support of generous donors from around the country we are able to offer financial aid, discounts, and scholarships. We know that these fees can be difficult for some families, and we want to provide everyone with as many options to keep LEAD affordable as possible. Check out the information below on the programs available to help you reduce the cost of camp registration this summer!

Early Registration Discount - $30

This is simple! Just submit your registration and pay in full by 11:59pm on March 15, 2021 and you’ll receive $30 off the regular cost of $460. Register now!

Referral Discount - Bring a Friend, Save $10

Bring a friend to LEAD and save!

For every first-time attendee you refer (with the exception of siblings), you will save $10 off of the cost of registration. There is no limit to how many friends you can refer. You can even save your friend $100 by sharing a code for the Youth Empowerment Scholarship. See the section below for more information.

For you to be credited the $10 per referral, any first-time students you refer must put your name on their registration form as the person who referred them. The total money saved will be refunded in cash at LEAD or may be used toward LEAD merchandise.

So get out there and go talk with some friends who haven’t heard about LEAD! You can request brochures and posters (for free!) to help spread the word, and don’t forget to read about the Youth Empowerment Scholarship so that your friends can save $100!

If you have any questions, please contact the office at 517-321-6233 or email office@ssionline.org.

Financial Aid Options

Thanks to a group of incredibly generous donors, we’ve never had to turn a single student away from LEAD due to lack of funds. If the registration cost would be a burden to you or your family, please consider pursuing the discounts above and submitting a financial aid application at ssionline.org/lead/financial-aid. We want every student to be able to experience a life-changing week of LEAD for themselves!
