SAFETY AT CAMP DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Safety of participants, staff, and volunteers are our top priority. All in-person opportunities will abide by Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and governmental recommendations and regulations. Camp groups will be reduced in capacity to provide additional space in any indoor areas. All camp activities will be modified to minimize necessity for close physical interactions. It is safe to assume that all in-person opportunities will require staff and campers to wear Personal Protective Equipment and to maintain a safe distance (6 feet) from one another whenever it is possible to do so.
DAY CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS
At the Y, we believe that every person who would like to should have the opportunity to participate in our programs. Through generous contributions to the Annual Campaign, the Ann Arbor YMCA provides financial scholarships to enable all members of the community to enjoy YMCA programs, regardless of financial capacity. Visit https://www.annarborymca.org/financial-assistancescholarships/ to learn more about applying for a day camp scholarship. The deadline for day camp scholarship is Monday, June 1, 2020.
All staff members are selected for their maturity, dedication, enthusiasm, and desire to allow children to reach their fullest potential. We are committed to hiring a diverse and welcoming staff. Our entire staff is CPR and First Aid-certified and participates in an intensive training program which covers safety, supervision, counseling and camp procedures. Ann Arbor YMCA average counselor-to-camper ratios exceed state guidelines to ensure that your child receives the best care and attention possible.
A Parent Handbook will be emailed to all registered participants prior to summer and will be available for download here. This handbook will contain detailed information concerning on YMCA Day Camp in-person protocols, policies, and procedures.
REFUND AND TRANSFER POLICY
At the time of registration, a deposit is due for each session for which the camper is registering. If we’re unable to move forward this summer as scheduled due to a government mandate, then all program fees and deposits will be refunded. Up to three weeks before the beginning of the specific camp session, all funds, less the deposit, are refundable and transferable within other day camp programs as space allows. This includes camp balance dues. Within three weeks of the beginning of the specific camp session, all funds are non-refundable and non-transferable to a balance due or to a new registration. If a camper, without notice, does not attend a session for which they are registered, there will be no refund issued. In cases of homesickness, dismissal, or voluntary withdrawal, there will be no refund of any fees.
