Why are there two prices listed by each camp?
The first price listed is for Monroe County YMCA members. The second price listed is the rate for non-members.
The camp I wanted to sign my child up for is full. What are my options?
You may be put on a wait list for the camp you are interested in. If a spot becomes available, we will contact you by phone. If you are not interested in your wait listed camp, please contact the YMCA and ask to have your name removed from the wait list.
What about sunscreen and bug spray?
We ask that you apply the first coat of sunscreen and bug spray at home each morning before coming to camp. Send your sunscreen and bug spray in your camper's backpack and counselors will reapply during the day. The YMCA will have extra sunscreen and bug spray for campers.
What should my child wear to camp?
Please bring your child to camp in clothes appropriate for getting dirty, playing games, and having fun. Also consider the weather conditions for the day when choosing attire. We recommend wearing shoes that won't easily come off. Please, no sandals. Remember to include a swimsuit and towel if your camper will be swimming that day.
Do I need to provide lunch every day?
Yes. Parents need to pack a lunch every day. Please don't send food that spoils quickly in the heat. We do not have space to refrigerate lunches.
What happens if there is bad weather?
If bad weather happens during camp, camp will be moved into the YMCA. Designated drop off and pick up areas for your camper will be posted in the lobby.
Can somebody else pick up my child from camp?
The only way another person may pick up your child from camp is if you have authorized that person to pick your child up on your camper's yellow card. This person will have to show identification to pick up your child.
We signed up for a week of camp, but our summer plans have changed. What now?
If before April 30, you will receive a full refund. If after April 30, you may transfer your child to another week of camp if space is available for a $10 fee. Cancellations after April 30 will be given no refund. Due to the popularity of the camps and our important counselor/camper ratio, cancellations will only be considered if there are children on the waiting list. Any cancellation request after April 30 must be submitted in writing to Chris Stone or Matt Osgood prior to the first day of the session for which your child is signed up. Member Service cannot issue a refund.
What if my child is signed up for more than one camp in a week?
We will make sure that your child is taken to the proper camp when their original camp is finished. It is the parent's responsibility to let the staff know that their child will need supervision to and from the activity. We will also make sure that they have time for their lunch.
