Financial Aid Information

Make sure you complete your Action for Children paperwork and turn it in by May 1, 2019! Forms can be found online at: https://www.actforchildren.org/for-families/paying-for-child-care/ccap-forms/ . 
This year parents and guardians can make an appointment to get pre-qualified for financial aid through Action for Children. Please contact jjohnson@ymcachicago.org for more information. In order to pre-qualify parents and guardians must supply their most recent tax tax return, their 4 most recent pay stubs, and a reciept from Action for Children proving the application has been submitted. 

If you are not approved before the first day of camp and have not been pre-qualified, you must pay the full price until approval is received. After you are accepted into the program, you are responsible for paying the parent-assigned monthly co-pay. Co-pays are issued by Action for Children according to the information that was submitted. This amount is a contract between the parent and AFC. 

 

Payment

Your completed registration form, along with a $30 deposit is required at the time of sign up for each week of camp for each child you wish to enroll in our summer camp program. This deposit will hold your camper’s spot for the summer and will be applied to the total cost of each week. Your balance of the fee per week is due according to the payment schedule. If you do not follow the payment schedule, you will be charged a $15 late fee.

A $15 Late Registration Fee will be applied to your payment if you register for any camp after the Wednesday your camp registration fee is due (4 days prior to the start of a new week of camp). For example, if you register for Week 1 (June 10-14) before June 5, you will not have to pay the late fee. If you register for Week 1 on or after June 5, you will be assessed the late fee.

Day-of Registration is not allowed. Your camper will be asked to attend camp the following day (after payment has been made) depending on staff to camper ratios.
