Summer Camp Information


YMCA Day Campers pack more into a summer than they ever thought they could.  The days are filled with arts and crafts, high-energy games, group activities, field trips, friendships, and much more.  Camp is offered for 11 weeks for boys and girls in grades K-6th grade (based on the 2019-2020 school year).  Campers are given the opportunity to meet new friends while experiencing the fun and excitement of summertime.  



Registration Details:
Once you have decided that your child will be joining us this summer, here are the steps that you need to follow to register your child. 

Step #1:
1. Mail/Visiting the YMCA: You will need to complete the Program Enrollment Card for each child you are registering for Summer Camp.  You will need to mail a check for the registration fee (listed below) along with the completed card to the Tri-County YMCA, Attn: Christine Kleaving, 131 E. 16th Street, Ferdinand, IN 47532 or drop off the form and the payment to the front desk staff at the YMCA Branch in Ferdinand.   

2. Online: At the current time, we are only able to accept online registrations for parents who are registering one child at the Regular Lunch at School rate.  The Summer Camp Registration link can be found here.  You will then follow the steps to register your child. **If you are registering multiple children or seeking financial assistance through our Free/Reduced Lunch at School rate, you will need to do the above action to register your child.    

Step #2:
Once you complete the Program Enrollment Card information, whether through the mail, by dropping it off at the Y, or online, you will receive an email from Christine Kleaving, Program Director, providing you with the next steps for completing the actual registration form through ePACT, our new online registration system that we will be utilizing for Summer Camp.
