Payment Plans Reimbursement Policy

At the time you register, a registration fee of $50 is required.

All camp program fees must be paid in full two weeks before the start of every session. We may refuse to accept campers who still owe a balance for the current week.

Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Cancelation Policy

If a participant cancels prior to 30 days before the start of your camper’s session, any tuition paid above the $50 deposit will be refunded. No tuition fees will be refunded or transferred if a camper cancels from the program within 30 days before the start of your camper’s session.

If there is space available in a future week at Day Camp within that summer, credit may be considered less the deposit.

If your child is unable to attend due to illness or injury, we ask you to notify us as early as possible. In the case of illness or injury that occurs before the camper’s session begins, all paid fees/tuition (except the $50 deposit per session) may be refunded upon receipt of a written notice from the camper’s physician. For refunds to be considered, the camp must be contacted prior to noon on the 1st day of the session, and a refund will not be issued if no notice is provided from a physician.

There is no pro-rating of fees for days missed during a session, or substituting days in another session for any reason. If the camper is a no-show (camp was not contacted prior to noon on the 1st day of the session), all fees are non-refundable.

What to Consider Prior to Enrollment

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is available for Becket Day Campers who may not be able to afford the program. Financial assistance is made possible by funds collected in our Becket-Chimney Corners YMCA Annual Fund. The Annual Fund is typically comprised of donations from generous camp families who believe in our programs and would like to share the opportunities with others.
Financial assistance is limited to four sessions per child.
For families at Tier 5, we ask that you complete our Campership Application
An application is complete when these 3 items below have been submitted:
