SUMMER DAY CAMP
Registration opens for Cleveland County Family YMCA Members
All remaining spots are open for registration to the public
Additional children will receive a $5 discount per week. We will never turn anyone away for their inability to pay. We offer scholarships to those in need. Financial assistance is available for families who need it to ensure that all kids in our community can have enriching summer experiences. To read more about our Scholarship Program, click here.
*Each camper is allowed one week (5 consecutive days) of vacation which does not impact the price structure. Should a camper wish to miss camp for more than one week, the Summer Select Pricing will be used.
A two-week notice is required for vacation weeks. Please fill out the vacation request form and return it to the Cleveland County Family YMCA or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org to suspend drafting fees for the requested week.
For more information about the Y's payment policies, please see the parent handbook.
At Camp your child can…
Laugh, learn, explore, grow and create memories and friendships that last a lifetime. Kids will discover not just the wonders of day camp, but the joy of exploring their unique traits, talents and interests and the power of sharing their strengths and skills to benefit the group.
