STATE ASSISTANCE/YMCA SCHOLARSHIPS It is the goal of the YMCA to provide educational, social and physical development services in our community, regardless of a person’s ability to pay. A waiver or reduction of fees is available subject to facility and program capacity, and demonstrated need, without regard to race, color, nationality, religion, gender, age or disability. Note: Scholarship requests are due by April 1, 2017. Child Care Assistance (CCAP) and YMCA Financial Assistance The YMCA accepts Child Care Assistance (CCAP) funds. Child Care Assistance (CCAP) is a child care financial assistance program provided by the Illinois Department of Human Service for working families. Don’t wait! The process for applying can take up to 45 days for new applicants to receive approval. Families will need to provide household income to qualify. We must have an approval letter before the first week of camp. After you are accepted into the program, you are responsible for paying the parent assigned monthly co-pay each month in addition to the differential. The differential is the daily cost of our program less the daily rate paid by (CCAP). If you qualify, your assistance can be applied to all of your weeks of camp. If you do not qualify, you will receive a denial letter. Submit the denial letter to us and then you can apply for Financial Assistance through the YMCA.

Since 1921, Camp Duncan has provided safe, quality camping programs for boys and girls ages 7 to 15 and Teen Adventure Camps for 15 to 17 year olds. All activities are geared to the developmental level of the campers. Camp Duncan is a co-ed, summer resident camp located near Fox Lake, Illinois, on 300 acres.

The camp offers fun and challenging activities such as swimming, climbing, boating, kayaking, archery, hiking, and much more. We also leave room for plenty of traditional programs, including sing-alongs, campfires and campouts.

YMCA CAMP PINEWOOD

Traditional but up-to-date, Camp Pinewood features 16 cabins on a private, spring-fed lake, with every activity from sailing to horseback riding. The camp is nestled in the heart of the Manistee National Forest near Muskegon, Michigan. It’s convenient but remote enough to ensure that everyone enjoys the natural beauty of the camp’s 200-acre facility.

YMCA FAMILY CAMP NAWAKWA

The camp sits on 180 acres of pristine forest lands, and includes wetlands and lakes with abundant wildlife.

YMCA CAMP INDEPENDENCE

We teach self-reliance, a love for nature, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character. Our counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.
