Camper FAQs

How do I register for Summer Camp?

New this Year! Summer Camp registration is online and in-house. You can reserve a space for your camper by registering online or by completing and handing in your camp paperwork at the Front Desk. Please Note: Online Registrations are prioritized over in-house registrations. 

What does my child need to bring/wear to Camp?

Please send child to Camp each day sunblocked, wearing bathing suit, and sneakers. Child's backpack should have towel, extra sunblock, water bottle, extra change of clothes, and lunch - all labeled with their name.  

When does my child need to wear his / her Camp T-Shirt?

Your child must wear our brightly colored camp t-shirt on ALL field trip days as the shirts help us easily and quickly identify and keep track of our campers. Each camper is provided with one camp t-shirt. Extra t-shirts may be purchased from the  YMCA front desk for an additional cost.

When does my child go on field trips?

Trip Schedule for all camps will be announced by Mid-April 2020.  

What will my child be doing at summer camp this week?

Parents will receive an email from their child’s camp director the Friday/Monday before the camp week begins. This email will provide information that pertains to the upcoming week’s events. Parents can also view a general daily schedule and a trip calendar for camps at our Camp Wydaca Home Page.

Where do I drop off and pick up my child?

Please refer to the Drop Off, Pick Up, and our NEW Traffic Pattern Section in the Parent Handbook.  

Do I need to send lunch for my child every day?

Please send a lunch for your child Monday through Thursday unless you would like to participate in our Lunch Program. We provide a FREE lunch to all campers on Friday, Contact [email protected] for more lunch information.

Can you apply sunscreen for my child?

Campers spend most of the day outdoors; sunscreen protection of SPF 15 or higher is highly recommended. Please be sure sunscreen has been applied to your child BEFORE they arrive for the day. Counselors will re-apply the sunscreen throughout the day. Please label your child’s sunscreen.
