Fee Structure

iBme is committed to keeping our retreats accessible to all teens who would like to attend. Our fee structure has been developed to accommodate a wide range of family incomes. The maximum fee reflects what it actually costs per student to run the retreat. We ask that you pay the tuition amount of 1% (1.5% for wilderness retreats) of annual family income. Your ability to pay the 1% tuition allows us to continue to offer this unique payment scale. We have never turned away a teen for lack of funds.

Application Fee

A $35 nonrefundable application fee is required and applied toward your tuition.


A deposit of 30% of your total payment is required to reserve a space on a retreat. The deposit includes your $35 nonrefundable application fee.


The balance of the retreat tuition must be paid two weeks before the retreat in order to hold your spot on the retreat.
