Where do I find medical forms and how do I get them to the Y?

  • Camp payments are auto-drafted weekly so camp is paid for by the start of camp. 

Is Financial Assistance Available for Camp?

Yes. For those who are in need of Financial Aid, you must apply before registering for camp. We require families to apply for the state funded Care4Kids program first, before applying for Financial Aid through the Y. Applications are available below.

If you need to apply for Care4Kids you will need to register using paper registration forms. Do not use the online camp registration. Go to the forms below. Print and complete the Care4Kids and Camp Registration Packet. The completed registration form and Care4Kids application can be dropped off at the New Britain YMCA front desk. If you are applying for Care4Kids, your weekly camp fee will be 50% of the total per child until your Care4Kids certificates are received and your account is adjusted accordingly. Any remaining balance after Care4Kids subsidy is applied to your account is the responsibility of the parent/guardian. If you are denied the Care4Kids subsidy you will be responsible for the total remaining balance.
