Payment Plans Reimbursement Policy

At the time you register, a registration fee is required:

Tiers 1-4 – $500
Tier 5 – $150 

After 10 calendar days, the camper registration fee becomes non-refundable and non-transferable. At the time of registration, families will be required to choose between making monthly payments or paying the full tuition in a lump sum. In the event an alternative payment method is required, please reach out to our staff.

If families choose monthly payments, they will be scheduled to be paid in full by May 1 and the monthly amount will be adjusted based on what time of year a family registers a camper. If a payment is missed or your payment bounces, we will inform you and ask for an alternative payment. If it happens a second time your reservation will be canceled and any refund will follow our refund policy below. 

If you select Tier 5, you must complete your campership application in our financial aid system (SSS) by our application deadline of November 1st. If you are applying to camp after November 1st you will have 30 days to complete your financial aid application in SSS. 

Cancelation Policy

If you cancel your child’s registration:

Prior to December 1st: Any tuition paid, excluding your registration fee, will be refunded.

After December 1st:  30% of the tuition is non-refundable and non-transferable. 

After February 1st: 60% of the tuition is non-refundable and non-transferable. 

There are no tuition refunds or transfers after April 1st. 

If your child leaves the program early for any reason (voluntary or not) there will be no refund of tuition.

What to Consider Prior to Enrollment


Once you apply, the primary account holder will receive an email confirmation from us with next steps. Please reach out to camp staff if you have any questions.

Camp contacts families in date and time order when an opening in a program occurs. You are welcome to contact camp weekly to see if your camper has moved up on a waiting list.

An individual who shares a vested interest in the well-being of the camper(s). A second parent or legal guardian who you want to be copied on all outgoing emails from camp and can speak with staff in regards to your camper(s).
You will be emailed when camp forms come out in the spring and are attached to your camp account. Please be sure to have them completed by May 1.
We recommend a store account ($100 for four-week campers and $75 for Starter campers) so that each camper has a camp store account upon their arrival. Money in the store account can be used for the purchase of clothing, snacks, toiletries, batteries and other souvenirs and for donations to YMCA World Service at chapels. You can add to this amount directly in your camp account.
