 The Leaders-in-Training program is offered Sessions 2, 3 and 4.

Please note that there will be a camper break between Sessions 3 and 4 (7/26-7/27). 

Typically, a session at Camp AGQ ends in the morning and a new session starts that very afternoon.  Campers who sign up for two or more sessions in a row stay on camp for that day and are supervised by staff in the hour between the two sessions.

 

There is one exception to this: Session 3 ends on Saturday, July 26, and Session 4 begins on Sunday, July 27. This gives us valuable time for staff training.  Campers who sign up for both Session 3 and Session 4 may sign up for “Stayover Camp,” which will provide care for these campers from 1 p.m. on Saturday through 2 p.m. on Sunday.  Campers in Stayover Camp will go to a local state park with our staff members and camp out over night.  They will have time to do laundry in town, see a movie, and eat out.  The cost of Stayover Camp is $60.  A minimum of 4 campers must register for this program by June 1 in order for Stayover Camp to be held.  If the minimum number of campers does not register, it will be the responsibility of the campers’ parents or guardians to care for the campers from 1 p.m. on Saturday through 2 p.m. on Sunday and Camp AGQ will not offer a stayover option.

 

Sessions 1 and 2 will be nut-free. All other sessions will have precautions taken for children with nut allergies, but will not be a nut-free environment

Scholarship Information

We will be providing scholarships for Camp Al-Gon-Quian, thanks to generous donors via the Ann Arbor YMCA’s Annual Campaign.  Campers who apply for a scholarship are not required to pay a deposit to register for camp.  To register a camper applying for a scholarship, please do so over the phone so you do not have to pay the deposit.  We recommend signing your camper up for his or her session of choice as soon as registration opens (Dec. 2 for returning campers/Y members and Jan. 15 for new campers).  We will hold your camper's spot while you fill out the YMCA financial aid application, which is due on March 15, 2014.  If you have any questions or would like a scholarship packet mailed to you, please contact us in the camp office at (734) 661-8051 or email camping[at]annarborymca.org.  You can also pick up a scholarship application at the YMCA front desk, or can be downloaded here.
