To register your child for Camp Abenaki we need to receive full payment the Wednesday before camp begins. Payment can be made to the front desk of the Northern Berkshire YMCA.
We accept checks, cash, debit and credit cards (no American Express or Discover) as well as vouchers through the Department of Children and Families and New England Farm Workers . The YMCA also offers financial aid to any qualifying camper. We do offer Electronic Fund Transfers that pull funds from your debit or credit card each week to pay for camps. Failure to pay for camp the Wednesday before camp begins will result in a $20 late fee or the possibility of camp being filled. There will be no refunds for children removed from the program for behavior of disciplinary reasons.
Campers must complete the enclosed registration form and attach a copy of your child’s most recent physical and immunizations. Children without completed forms will not be admitted to the Northern Berkshire YMCA Camps. Only one set of forms are needed per camper, as the forms will be used for the whole summer.
Please label everything that your child brings to camp. The Y is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Each day children should bring a backpack with the following items in it each day: bathing suit and towel, sunscreen, light jacket and/or raincoat, sweatshirt, 2 snacks and drinks, lunch and a drink, WATER BOTTLE, and sneakers or enclosed shoes. Parents are required to apply sunscreen to their campers before camp each morning. Parents are also responsible for sending a bottle of sunscreen everyday with their child. Each camper will be instructed to apply sunscreen regularly throughout the day. The camp Staff recognizes that some children may need assistance putting on sunscreen. Staff will apply sunscreen to visible parts of the body. Please note that since our camps are outdoor camps, children will be outside-please dress for the weather. Also, please send your child/children in clothing that can get dirty while playing outdoors! Please leave items such as radios, cell phones, electronic equipment, expensive jewelry, nice clothing and valuables at home.

However, when inclement weather prevents camp from taken place outdoors all children should be dropped off at the YMCA. TUNE INTO WNAW FOR ANNOUNCEMENTS.
