forms & registration
Open registration for Camp AGQ has begun! To register online, click on "Quick Links" on the top right of this page and then "Online Registration." Once you get to the memberlink site, you can search "AGQ" to bring up all of our camp programs. If you have any trouble with the online registration system, feel free to call the camp office at (734)661-8051.
We apologize for the technical difficulties on the first day of early registration! If you would like to check on your camper's status in a particular session or his or her waitlist status, please call the camp office at (734)661-8051. Thank you for your patience!
After a camper is registered, you will receive a paper confirmation of all registrations and payments due in the mail within a month. Camper information forms (including health, cabinmate request and store account information) will be sent via email in late April and are due by June 1st. If you would like to request paper copies of the forms, please call the camp office.
If you would like to register your camper for the bus or for one of our extra programs (like horseback riding, waterskiing, sailing or the Frodo Journey) after he or she is registered, you must do it over the phone by calling the camp office at 734-661-8051.

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 (7/27-7/28).
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 27, and Session 4 begins on Sunday, July 28. 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

We will be providing scholarships for Camp Al-Gon-Quian, thanks to generous donors via the Ann Arbor YMCA’s Strong Kids 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. 3 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, 2013. 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.
