I'm the treasurer which creates a bunch of tasks before and after camp. I've just balanced the books and it looks like we netted $890 on a total of about $16,000. I do the budgeting and try to plan for breaking even on a likely low head count so that we have not much risk of losing money. Break even was 80 people and we had 85 this time. Part of the uncertainty is due to the mix of people on work exchange and at full fee. We set the rates so that work exchange people pay approximately the cost we pay the hosting site. The full people have to account for the staff fees, the publicity expenses, and the room and board for the staff (musicians and camp committee).
