Need to make changes to your child’s camp registration?

*ADD Weeks: Please use the drop-down menus on our website under ‘Locations’ and register for a future week.

*CANCEL Weeks: Please email our Youth Development office (YD@FCYMCA.org) to submit your cancellation in writing.

Pricing, Payments, and Deposits
Pricing varies by location.  When registering for camp, you must pay the $50 registration fee (non-refundable, non-transferable – per child, per camp site) and pay $25 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit for each week you want your child to attend. This deposit will hold your spot in that week. Weekly payments are paid as automatic payments through the account information on file.  Your weekly fee will draft automatically on Wednesdays at approx. 3am before the week of care.  A $10 return fee will be added if your payment is returned. If you do not make payment by Thursday before the desired week, on Friday you will be unenrolled and lose your spot for that week. Both the $25 deposit & $50 registration fees are non-refundable, non-transferable and will be forfeited if unenrolled due to non-payment.

Cancellation Policy
Cancellations with a 7 day notice prior to the summer camp week will be refunded any money paid towards the sessions, minus the non-refundable, non-transferable $25 deposit and the $50 registration fee. Changing camps is the same as cancelling the original camp and ordering a new camp. All cancellations must be submitted by emailing our Youth Development office at YD@FCYMCA.org.

Refunds
Non-attendance does not entitle a participant to a refund. No refunds or adjustments will be granted for partial weeks missed due to illness, vacation or when YMCA programs are cancelled due to inclement weather. The YMCA reserves the right to apply any credit due to other outstanding balances. Refunds are issued within 30 days of cancellation. The registration fee and camp deposits are non-transferable, non-refundable.

Financial Assistance
Scholarships, in the form of financial assistance, are awarded to families interested in participating in YMCA programs, like our Before and After School Program. To determine eligibility, a family must complete a financial assistance application and supply all necessary supporting documentation. A member of the YMCA professional staff team will review applications confidentially and make award determinations based on a sliding scale. We are sensitive to extenuating circumstances, and will readily discuss needs a family may have beyond what their household income would indicate.  Financial Assistance application process may take up to 10 business days to process.  Parent is responsible for full payment until a decision is made.  Financial Assistance is not retroactive and will not be applied to previous payments; any applicable discounts will be into effect going forward.

Summer Food Service Program

YMCA Summer Day Camps have applied to participate in the free Summer Food Service Program at those sites that qualify. Children who attend these sites will receive an optional free cold lunch and snack.
