Frequently asked questions

Q: The camp/program we're interested in is full. Can I be added to a waitlist should a spot open up?
A: We do not keep waitlists as this is a live registration and the enrollment fluctuates as people sign up or drop camps/programs, and the seat may be taken again before we can contact individuals on the waitlist. If someone drops, the seat will become available in the online store.

Q: When and where is drop off and pick up?
A: Parents should arrive between 8:30-8:45 a.m. Park in Admission Lot C and walk your child/teen into the the Life Sciences Building. Pick up is at 3 p.m. also at the Life Sciences Building. Parents/guardians must show identification and sign a dismissal sheet. Do not leave your child/teen unattended or leave until they are checked in with their camp assistant/instructor. Staff will not be in place before 8:30 a.m. If you arrive early, you must wait with your child/teen. Parents arriving late to pick up will incur a $20 late fee per incident. See the YMCA extended care information below as an option if needed.

Q: I need to have a sitter or relative pick up my child/teen from camp/program on certain days? Is there anything I need to do?
