To attend a free YMCA summer camp program, follow the steps below.
Day and overnight camps are available through a number of local YMCA branches, and parents can search for and view all available programs through YMCA.org or local branch sites, according to the organization's website.
Complete the camp application form. Some branches offer online registration forms, whereas others require registrants to print out and deliver applications in person. Follow the instructions on the application form.
Most branches require registrants to pay either a deposit or the full cost of the camp upon registration, but several branches offer financial assistance to families that meet annual income requirements, notes YMCANYC.org. Registrants may be required to pay the full fee amount upon registration and will receive a refund if approved for financial assistance.
Complete registration by submitting all required information such as medical forms and passport-sized photos, depending on the camp. Visit a local branch to learn more.
