Tell City Summer Day Camp


We are excited that you have chosen the Y!  We know how important it is for you to have a safe, convenient, affordable program for your child to attend while you are at work.  We offer a structured program designed with the child and working family in mind.  YMCA Day Camps challenge children to grow in imagination, creativity, confidence, self-directed initiative, and leadership.  
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 10 weeks for boys and girls in grades K-6th grade (based on the 2020-2021 school year). Campers are given the opportunity to meet new friends while experiencing the fun and excitement of summertime.  We are dedicated to changing the lives of our campers in a positive way and thank you for giving us the opportunity to do so.  We are committed to providing your child with a rewarding and memorable experience.  We have hired role models for your children who will help build character, positive experiences, and memories that will last a lifetime.  Whether you are new to the YMCA Summer Camp or a seasoned Y Camper, we are pleased to welcome you to 2020 Summer Camp.

Registration Begins April 13th

This summer, we will be using the system called ePACT to take our registration forms.  ePACT is a secure emergency network that we will use to collect medical and emergency contact information electronically.  Not only will ePACT replace paper forms, but it will also ensure we have a way to communicate with you in the event of an illness, injury, or larger scale emergency.

In order to register your child for camp, you will need to follow the steps below.

Step #1:

1. Mail/Visit the YMCA: Parents are welcome 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(s) 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.  Payments will not be accepted at the YMCA until April 13th.


2. Online: Starting on April 13th, we will be able to accept online Program Enrollment and payments.  At the current time, we are only able to accept online registrations for pare
nts who are registering one child at the Regular Lunch at School rate.  The link will be posted on April 1st.  **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 (#1) to register your child(ren).

Registration Fee
This fee is used to help cover the cost of supplies and field trips and is required at the time of sign-up to register a child(ren) for camp.

Regular Lunch at School: The cost for one child is $45.00.  If registering siblings, the cost is $75.00 for the family.
Free/Reduced Lunch at School: The cost for one child is $20.00.  If registering siblings, the cost is $30.00 for the family.


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 online registration system that we will be utilizing for Summer Camp.

  • You’ll receive an email invite to share information with the Tri-County YMCA.
  • Click ‘Complete Request’ to create a free account, or log-in if you already have an existing ePACT account.
  • Enter the required information and share it with the Tri-County YMCA so the program staff have access to the information.
  • If you are a returning camper from last summer, you will need to review the enrollment form and make any necessary updates to your child's form and then share it with the YMCA.

**If you would prefer to complete a paper registration form as opposed to receiving an email with a link to complete the registration form online, you are welcome to contact Christine at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for a registration form.  Once completed, you will mail it along with the registration fee to Tri-County YMCA, Attn: Christine Kleaving, 131 E. 16th Street, Ferdinand, IN 47532.  The form will then be scanned and filed in ePACT so the staff will have access to the information.

Your child will not be officially registered for camp until the ePACT registration form is completed.  
Children MUST have a completed ePACT registration form on file before being able to attend camp.
