ELECTRONIC-FREE

Did you know that kids ages 5 to 10 spend an average

of up to six hours on screen media daily? That is one of the

reasons why the use of cell phones, cameras or other

electronic devices during camp hours is prohibited.

Such equipment, if present, will be asked to be put away or

confiscated and returned at the end of the day. We want

your children to get the most out of their time at camp.

Dress for the weather and please

label your camper’s belongings!

REGISTRATION

Register Now for Y Summer Camp!

It’s easy to register

for camp!

Visit your local YMCA branch or

ymcagbw.org/camp for full details

and to reserve your spot today.

EPACT: Once your child's registration

is processed in our system, the Payer

and Head of Household will receive an

email from YMCA of Greater Brandywine

via ePACT Network. This contains

very important information on filling

out your child's health history and

emergency contacts. Please make sure

this information has been completed and

shared online so they can participate on

the first day of the program.

REGISTRATION POLICIES

• A YMCA membership is not required to

register for camp. However, those who

maintain a YMCA membership at the

time of registration through the end of a

camp session receive the member rate. If

the membership is not maintained during

this period, the rate will be adjusted to

the non-member rate. No changes to

rates will be made if a YMCA membership

has been started AFTER the camp

registration has been processed.

• Registration for each camp must

be submitted by 10 pm the previous

Wednesday. A late fee of $50 will be

applied on registrations after that

deadline and if space allows.

• A camp deposit of $35 per child per week is

due at the time of registration. Deposits are

non-refundable and non-transferable and

are subtracted from your weekly rate.

Please note, the deposit cannot be

transferred to another session.

• The remaining balance will be processed

two Sundays prior to the camp start date.

Payments must be made through weekly

automated drafts or in-full at the time of

registration. You may pay earlier by

contacting the branch to set up another

payment. Camp payments are not able to

be split between two or more payers.

• No refunds are available within two weeks

of the start of the session.

• Families who receive Child Care Works (CCW)

funding are required to pay a $10 per

camper per week fee in addition to their

weekly co-pay. In the event coverage

is terminated by CCW, the family will be

responsible for all care expenses incurred.

• Families with two or more children signing

up for the same week receive 10% off the

lowest weekly fee (restrictions apply). If you

register online, please complete the sibling

discount form and we will apply the discount

to your account. Discount is not able to be

combined with financial assistance and/or

staff discounts.

• Those applying CCW funds must register in

branch. Online registration is not available

for those requests.
