2023 SUMMER CAMP
When summer is full of the laughs, high-fives, songs, and exciting challenges children dream of all year, that’s more than a great memory, that’s an experience that can change a child’s life. At camp, kids get the chance to challenge themselves like never before, and try something new every day. Whether it’s getting on stage to sing a song, swimming in the deep end, hiking off the beaten path or building an invention, the Y helps campers strive and thrive as individuals and leaders.
IMPORTANT UPDATES FOR 2023 SUMMER DAY CAMPS:
Registration will take place in two phases this year. The first option will be for full-time, 5 days a week care for Day Camps, Summer School Age programs, Teen Camp and Adventure Camps. All Specialty Camps will also register during this phase. The second option will be for those who are only interested in part-time care, or a couple days a week. Please be aware some camps may fill during full-time, 5 days a week, registration.
Option 1: Full-Time 5 Days a Week and Specialty Camp
Member Registration begins on Monday, January 9, 2023 at 6:00 AM
General Public Registration begins on Monday, January 23, 2023 at 6:00 AM
Registrations for 5 days a week means you are committing to have care Monday- Friday for each week you register throughout the summer. Registration for every week is not required (i.e vacation or other programs).
Option 2: Part-Time Care
Registration for Members and General Public begins on Monday, February 20, 2023 at 6:00 AM
To receive member rates and priority registration (January 9-22), your child must be a member at the time of registration and maintain an active membership until the end of summer enrollments. Lapse of membership at any time between priority registration and summer programs will result in being charged general public rates.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to register for multiple days, or an entire week, after clicking the "Register Now" link, you must select a specific camp program from the grey box at the top of the screen. If you don't follow this step, you will be required to register for each day separately.

At the Y, we believe in providing membership and program services to all who desire to participate in the Y, regardless of ability to pay. We are asking those in need of assistance to make an appointment prior to your scheduled camp. If you have a child who would like to participate, but needs assistance, please contact Member Services at your Y location. W2 state and county funding is accepted at some camps. Please call or email the camp contact for additional information.
Y Summer Camp Programs are open to children of all abilities. Parents have a duty to disclose significant medical, physical or behavioral needs at the time of enrollment. Due to the large group format of our Summer Camps, the Y is unable to provide one-on-one care. If your child has unique needs that require a more specific type of accommodation, a meeting must be scheduled with the Camp Director a minimum of 2 weeks prior to attending the program. This allows us to identify the most effective ways of serving you and your child. Children are still expected to maintain the standards for the Summer Camp Program to the best of their ability. Any disciplinary actions that would be required would take their ability into account.
