Registration Information

2016 Summer Day Camp Registration

Parents can register online for summer day camp here.

Parents can also register in person at a YMCA branch by downloading the Youth Information Form below, filling it out and bringing it in. You'll need one form per child. 

Special needs and fully subsidized summer camps are not available for online registration.

Payments and drafts

YMCA Summer Day Camp sessions require a $5 deposit due at the time of registration. Parents may pay for day camp sessions in full, or the YMCA will draft on the first of the month for that month's weeks of programs. (For example, a July 1 draft would pay for all July weeks of camp.)

Once the first of the month has passed, the YMCA requires payment in full for that month's weeks of camp. 

Once a child is registered for day camp, parents may visit their online account and pay down their day camp balance. This can be useful if you need to reduce your summer drafts or wish to pay ahead for camp.

We accept debit and credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard or American Express, online and cash, check, or debit or credit cards at the YMCA branch. 

Registration Deadlines

Our registration deadline for Summer Day Camps and Tracking Out Weeks is midnight on Thursday for a program/ sessions beginning the following week. A $20 late fee is applied to all registrations received after that deadline. 

Refunds and Cancellations

In order to cancel a youth program, the YMCA must receive written cancellation two weeks prior to the last date of attendance in the program. Refunds are issued within 30 days from receipt of written cancellation. The $5 deposit is non-refundable. 

Striving to Serve All

We offer financial assistance based on need and availability. For more information, contact the YMCA branch where you register.

This information applies to all YMCA of the Triangle summer programs. 

2016 Summer Day Camp Policies

Medication Form

Parents (not the child) may bring necessary medication to the program office. Medications must be in their original containers with written instructions for dispensing. 

A Medication Distribution Form must be provided for staff to apply over the counter, topical ointments, insect repellents, lotions, sprays, creams and powders, such as sunscreen (spray or lotion). 

For safety reasons, all medications are stored and locked in the program office. Do not pack medication with lunch or snacks.

With respect to giving EpiPen and/or Glucagon injections to children participating in its programs, the YMCA will comply fully with the requirements of the Americans With Disabilities Act. For those children who may require EpiPen and/or Glucagon injections, or who have other special medical needs, the YMCA will meet with parents or guardians of such children and, through dialogie, strive to develop a mutually acceptable plan designed to address the medical circumstances of each individual child. The YMCA will not administer, or be responsible for administering, medications that have to be inserted into body cavities.


The YMCA offers a transportation option for many programs. All YMCA buses undergo regular maintenance and inspections as part of the Y's ongoing vehicle maintenance program. 

All YMCA of the Triangle dirvers are required to attend a driver's training class. They must pass both a written and driving test and receive a CDL (Commercial Driver License) before being allowed to transport children in our large buses. In addition, each driveer must pass a DMV background check and random drug testing. CDL Drivers are required to receive a physical as part of their licensing requirement. 


At pickup time, children will only be release to parents, legal guardians and those designated on the Youth Information Form, or as emergency contacts with pickup on your child's account. Drivers must display YMCA pickup cards or photo identification. If you plan to have anyone else pick up your child, you must notify a youth director or office manager in writing. Parents who drop off or pick up children outside of scheduled times must sign the child in and/or out at the program office. In cases of driving rain and/or lightning, staff will keep children sheltered until conditions improve. This may slow down the pickup process, requiring drivers to wait. The safety of YMCA children and staff is our first priority. The YMCA/our staff or volunteers do not buckle children of any age into their car seats or fasten seatbelts, even when requested by the parents. We do make every effort to be efficient in the Rides Out line and will provide parking spaces or pull up space for a parent who needs to pull up so they can secure their own child.

Late Pickup

A late fee is charged for children picked up after the last pickup time. The late fee is $5 for the first 10 minutes past pickup time, and $1 for each additional minute thereafter. Two staff members will remain with the child until a parent arrives.
