Summer Camp 2020

Fun? It’s in our nature! YMCA summer camp has the capacity to transform young lives in many ways. Your child will play, explore, learn new skills, and make new friends at the Y this summer. With campers being surrounded by positive role models, natural environments, and our Christian principles, the combination is perfect for enhancing lives and building positive character traits. We look forward to creating life-long memories with your child while they grow in spirit, mind, and body.

Due to the new guidelines, in order to keep staff and campers safe we have had to reduce the capacity at our summer camps. Because of this, some of our centers have already reached their capacity. If you have any questions, please email us at daycamp@ymcavp.org.

NEW DROP-OFF AND PICK UP

To limit the amount of people entering the building, we will be using curbside drop-off and pick up from 6-9:15 a.m. and from 3:15-6 p.m. If you should need to drop-off or pick up outside of these times call your child’s center.

Staff will be disinfecting all high contact surfaces every 30 minutes. Many shared items such as board games, equipment, blocks, and books will be disinfected before each use.

PERSONAL BELONGINGS

Campers should only bring necessary items to summer camp. This may include a labeled personal water bottle, a lunch box and/or a change of clothing. Each camper will be supplied a personal item bag and a cubby for their belongings

FACE COVERINGS

HOW TO REGISTER FOR CAMP

Please note: If your child’s camp will be paid by a third-party (such as Social Services or FAPT), or you will be seeking YMCA financial assistance, please locate the YMCA center where you wish your child to attend camp from the listings below to fill out an Application for Financial Assistance. If you cannot afford to pay the standard fees; ask about the Guardian program. Do not begin the online registration process until your child care director confirms all financial paperwork is received.

Registration begins with our online registration form you complete at your convenience. Please allow enough time to complete the application and questionnaire in one sitting. The system will time out automatically if left open without activity and will not save your answers. Once that form is submitted, please contact the YMCA you registered for and make an appointment to complete the registration process. Due to state licensing requirements, to complete your registration you must bring these items listed below; incomplete registrations cannot be accepted: 

  1. School physical (Preschool children must have physical within 24 months)
  2. Shot record/immunization record
  3. Original birth certificate (valid passport, hospital record of birth, birth registration card, placement agreement are also acceptable)
  4. Medication Authorization form (if applicable)

A $40 non-refundable registration fee per child and camp fees/deposits are due upon registration.

  • Payment balance is due by the Monday before the Monday of the week of camp your child will be attending
  • $5 discount for each additional child after your first child (see online registration for details)

Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
