Financial Assistance

With the YMCA, everyone can afford to keep their kids healthy and safe this summer!

Financial assistance is available for those needing help to pay for camp through Department of Human Services. If you qualify DHS assistance can be applied for all weeks of summer camp. Applications for assistance is through Community Coordinated Child Care (4C's) at 815.758.8149 or 800.848.8727, or picked up at Member Service Desk. You do not have to be a YMCA member to qualify.

If you do not qualify for DHS, you may apply for funds through the Sage YMCA. Financial assistance is made available on limited basis for families and based on annual income, family size and supported documentation. Confidential applications are available at the Member Service Desk during regular business hours. They may also be downloaded from the FORMS page of our website.

If you qualify for financial assistance through DHS you can not apply for additional financial assistance through the YMCA. You can apply for membership finanical assistance only.

A non-refundable deposit per week is required to hold your child's spot in camp, even if you have applied for DHS or YMCA financial assistance. This deposit may be applied to your DHS co-pay.

When DHS or YMCA financial assistance are utilized for third party payment by camp families, approval must be recieved PRIOR to a camper starting the program or the family will have to pay the camp fee in full. Don't wait — apply now!
