A Summit Area YMCA Membership is required to register for camp online. Summer camp registration (with the exception of The Learning Circle YMCA summer camps) is online only. You may reserve a space for your child by paying the full camp fee or with a non-refundable $50 deposit for each week of camp. Payments due on June 1, June 15, July 1 and July 15 will automatically be charged to the credit/debit card on file unless alternative arrangements are made with the Camp Registrar.
To ensure a safe and quality camp experience for all campers, online registration will end Tuesday at midnight prior to the start of the upcoming camp week. No registrations will be accepted the weekend before the camp week begins. If late registration is accepted, there is a $25 late registration fee for day camp and $10 late registration fee for add-on programs. Late registrations must be requested via the Camp Registrar.
If the Emergency Contact Information is incomplete for your child, their camp registrations will be rejected. For Extended Care participants, a Late Pick-Up Fee of $5/minute will be applied per minute for children picked up after 6:30PM.
Any changes to camp registration or transfers are subject to availability and space is not guaranteed. If space is not available in the camp you've requested, we will contact you. Change requests can be made up to the 2 weeks before the scheduled camp program starts. Any fee differences will be charged in full once your request is processed. Each family is allowed one camp transfer at no cost, after which a $30 change processing fee per request will be charged to your billing method on file. Promotional pricing does not transfer from camp to camp after the promotional period has ended. If your fees are reduced and result in an overpayment, the amount will be applied to your YMCA account as a system credit. You will be emailed a confirmation and a receipt, if applicable, once your request has been processed.
To request a camp transfer, please complete our Summer Camp Change Request Form. If you need to request changes for multiple children, a separate request form must be completed for each child.
If you have specific billing questions please contact us.
