Camp is an important part of every child’s summer, and the Y has a long history of offering the highest quality camps in New York City. You don't need to wait for the Y to re-open our doors to register, online registration is now open. The Y is closely monitoring the coronavirus situation and we are planning for multiple scenarios. Please know that if it is unsafe to run camp, we will not run camp. The health and safety of our communities is our highest priority.
The Y has updated our discounts and summer camp credit and refund policy to help families plan for the future.
- The new early bird deadline is June 1, 2020. Receive 10% off by paying your camp balance by then.
- If a family would like a refund, we will honor all refund requests up through June 15, 2020 and refund all fees, including deposits.
- If the city does not allow summer camps to operate, we will refund all fees, including deposits.
After a thorough review, the YMCA has decided to close our Sleepaway Camp operations for the remainder of 2020. Read our full update >
