Financial Assistance

YMCA programs and activities are designed to benefit people of all backgrounds. Fees are based on the cost of providing each program. Our policy is to never turn away anyone because of their inability to pay. Scholarships are awarded based upon the applicant's demonstrated ability to pay and the availability of the Leaning Tower YMCA resources. The deadline for all financial assistance applications is May 1, 2017.

Third Party Payments: Organizations such as Day Care Action Council and Action For Children also provide financial assistance to families. When organizations such as these are utilized for third party payments by camp families, approval must be received PRIOR to the camper starting the program or the family will have to pay the camp fee in full. Parents using AFC, please plan accordingly and begin the application process at least 30 days in advance.
