PARENTS LOVE YMCA DAY CAMP

CAMP DORY

CAMP TAKOMA, LOCATED AT THE IPSWICH FAMILY YMCA

Camp Takoma is located behind the Ipswich Family YMCA on eight acres of groomed fields and wooded trails. Campers are provided with an array of activities, supervised by trained and caring staff members, that help build self-confidence, self-awareness and friendships. Camp Takoma is a traditional day camp experience that will fill your child’s summer with memories that will last a lifetime!

CAMP DORY, LOCATED AT CENTENNIAL GROVE IN ESSEX, MA

• • • • • • • • •

Explore the shores of scenic Chebacco Lake in Essex. Camp Dory is a classic day camp with sports clinics, themed games, pioneering and unique art projects that build confidence and teamwork. Campers bond with friends while swimming, fishing, kayaking and canoeing under the supervision of excited and energetic Y Camp Staff.

“I believe this program is giving my son a positive self-image, helping him try new things and opening him up to new people and experiences.” “My daughter has planned her future years at camp and wants to be a counselor there in a few years because she enjoys it so much.” “My children are excited to go to camp everyday ... they have new experiences and sports to try that they love and wouldn’t be able to get anywhere else.”


Registration

NEW THIS YEAR - Our improved E-pay system makes paying for camp easier than ever! The YMCA of the North Shore makes registering and paying for camp easy and convenient. Parents can register in person at the front desk or online and can choose from one of the three following payment methods: • Pay in full at the time of registration. • Use our convenient E-pay system and we’ll automatically draft either a credit/debit card or checking account 7 days prior to the start of your camp session. Never worry about remembering to pay! Secure your spot with a $25 deposit which can be credited for other camps or programs up until 7 days prior to the start of the camp session. • Pay a $25 non-refundable deposit at time of registration and then pay the balance at least 7 days prior to the start of camp. Registration is complete when you have: • Completed and returned to the Y the required registration packet (emergency phone number and email contact are required at time of registration). • Signed off that you have received and read the Parent Handbook. • Provided an up-to-date physical and immunization form. • Paid for your first week in full. Paper registrations are taken at the Ipswich Family YMCA. You can drop off your registration at the Ipswich Family YMCA or mail it to 110 County Road, Ipswich, MA 01938. This process must be completed each year. Registration is due the Friday before camp care is needed.

Camp Change Policy

All camp changes must be done in writing and submitted to the camp registrar at ipswichycamps@northshoreymca.org. • Families on E-Pay will receive free changes as needed throughout the camp season. • Families not on E-Pay receive one free change and will be charged a fee of $15 per change per camper after that.

FINANCIAL AID

Y summer camps are for everyone regardless of income. The Y provides financial assistance for families who are unable to pay the full camp fee. Subsidies are available thanks to the generous support of “Y For All” donors and United Way contributions. Visit your local Y or our website at www.northshoreymca.org for a confidential financial assistance application or to make a contribution. Applications for financial assistance should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the start of the camp session to allow for processing.

Cancellation & Refund Policy

All camp cancellations must be done in writing and submitted to the camp registrar at ipswichycamps@northshoreymca.org • All cancellations accompanied by a doctor’s note any time prior to the start of your child’s camp session will receive full refund. • For families on E-pay, all cancellations submitted more than 7 days prior to the start of your child’s camp session will receive a Y credit. All cancellations submitted less than 7 days before the start of your child’s camp session will receive a credit minus the $25 deposit. All cancellations received on or after the start of your child’s session will receive a Y credit for the pro-rated amount paid based on the remaining number of days in the session minus the $25 deposit. • For families not on E-pay, all cancellations submitted more than 7 days before the start of your child camp session will receive a refund minus the $25 deposit. All cancellations made less than 7 days prior to the start of the session will receive a refund minus the $25 deposit and a $25 processing fee. All cancellations received on or after the start of your child’s session will receive a Y credit for the pro-rated amount paid based on the remaining number of days in the session less the $25 deposit and $25 processing fee. If you have any questions about registration, cancellations, changes or refunds, you can reach the camp registrar at ipswichycamps@northshoreymca.org.
