Are overnight camps eligible under the Dependent Care FSA?

No, overnight camps are not eligible for reimbursement, even if you separate the expense for the daytime portion and the overnight portion. This ineligibility as a dependent care expense holds even if the camp separately allocates the expenses for day time and overnight activities. The key criteria prohibiting such reimbursement appears to be the IRS view that this expense is not employment-related, and their refusal to entertain any attempts to allocate the overall expense into qualifying and nonqualifying categories.
