Registration Information

Family camp registration includes an accommodation fee and an individual fee.  Accommodation fees are for the full session and the entire space reserved.  Individual fees are per person and include all meals and most activities.

 Accommodation Notes:

Accommodation options for family camp include cabins, yurts, platform tents or sites to pitch your own tent.  Regardless of the option chosen, the space is yours to fill as you wish – we do not assign families together in cabins or yurts for you.   Accommodations will be reserved to only one family and that family is responsible for the full payment to the YMCA.  Accommodation reservations may be made with a 50% deposit.
