Camp Registration Schedule
ONLINE: March 1 at 7AM
Visit your home YMCA web site's "Register Now" tab to complete your registration entirely online! Registration for all camps will close one week prior to the beginning of each camp week. For more information and instructions on using our program guide and registering for camps go to the how to register section a the bottom of this page.
Below are options of applications for financial aid toward program fees. While we are a not-for-profit organization, we do depend on participation fees to help maintain our programs and services. We are committed to serve people regardless of their income, but we do expect participants to pay a fee based on their financial ability.
APPLY FOR SUBSIDY
Maine’s childcare subsidy program helps eligible families pay for child care/camp so they can go to work, go to school, or participate in job training programs. Visit www.maine.gov or call 1-877-680-5866 for more information on how to apply, or use this link to view the application.
APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIP
Summer camp scholarships are granted to families who need financial support who are not eligible for subsidy through the state, based on income. Please be sure to apply for scholarships through the Y early, as we grant dollars on a first-come, first-serve basis. Applicants must reside in the Lincoln County Area and meet yearly household income requirements.
SET UP A PAYMENT PLAN
All fees are due at the time of registration. Payment plan options are available. Payment plan dates run from camp registration through 10 days prior to the start date of your camper’s session.
For more information through the Boothbay Region YMCA, connect with Erin Gray; email@example.com
For more information through the Central Lincoln County YMCA, connect with Morgan Perry; firstname.lastname@example.org
CampDoc is a secure network, used to collect campers’ medical and emergency contact information electronically. If you have an account through CampDoc last season, please make sure all of the information is updated for 2023.
Your camp registration will not be considered complete until the required documents are into the network. No exceptions will be made.
CHOOSING CAMPS AND HOW TO REGISTER
