Magic Happens When You're at Camp

With homework on hold, summer provides an opportunity for families to focus on other facets of growth and development. At Y Camp, children can unlock new skills, realize hidden talents, and learn that there are no limits to what they can achieve. The skills developed, friendships forged with children from other backgrounds, and life lessons learned are what help shape youth into positive people who are unafraid to try new things and believe they can succeed.


The registration fee is a one-time, non-refundable, non-transferable per camper fee. The amount of the fee is based on the date of your initial registration:

  • Mar 1 - 31: $20 fee
  • Apr 1 - 30: $30 fee
  • May 1 - 31: $40 fee
  • Jun 1 - Sept 1: $50 fee

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.
