Because of the large size of the program, we are limited to where we can host FDF. Food, facility rental costs, service fees, AV and video production, staging, etc. add up. The package price is determined by the total expenses we have to keep the program running. Natural economic costs also increase each year, and what FDF cost 10 years ago is not what equivalent to today’s environment. Considering what families pay to attend FDF weekend is very important to the FDF Board of Trustees and Leadership. We try very hard to work closely with our vendors to make sure we are getting the lowest possible price for the highest quality services.
