Traditional, Kindergarten, Teen and LIT Camp slots will be held with a $25 non-refundable deposit fee for each camper per weekly session at time of registration.

The refund/payment policies stated above are strictly enforced to allow completion of camp preparation.
There will be no option to switch or transfer camps after the Wednesday of the week prior to camp in order to maintain staff/camper ratios needed for safety.
Available on a limited basis for families in need. Applications are available at the Member Relations Desk during regular business hours or on our website. All camp financial aid applications should be returned in to the YMCA by March 1st to be considered for the 2019 camp season.
*Please note that financial assistance does not apply towards Specialty Camps.
The YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago does not carry medical, accidental or loss of personal property insurance for any program participants, due to the fact that it would drastically increase the cost of our program fees. Please review the insurance policies that protect you and your family to be certain that proper coverage is in place.
