Register for Camp Whippoorwill

To register, review the camp options below then click the button for the camp you want to register for. 

During your initial registration, you must accept a waiver stating that you agree to be charged a one-time, non-refundable, non-transferable registration fee (per camper). The fee will be added to your Y account and charged to the credit card used at the time of registration. If the fee is $0 during a promotion, you must still accept the waiver. Please Note: If you register for additional camp weeks at a later date, the waiver will reappear and must be accepted, however you will not be charged an additional registration fee.

Once you've completed your initial registration, you will be emailed a link to our new camp paperwork system, CampSpace. Use this link to create your CampSpace account and complete all required health and medical forms and our 2020 camp packet. Campers cannot be admitted to camp without this information.

If you are not a returning camp family or Y member, you will need to set up an online account prior to registering. Please follow the 'create an account' instructions that will appear during the registration process. If you need assistance setting up or accessing your online account, please contact or call or stop by your nearest Y center. We're happy to help!
