Two Easy Ways to Register

Choose any registration option listed below. A medical release/liability waiver must be submitted during the registration process.

1. Online

You can register online if you are already in the Y's database (because you are a member or have participated in a Y program before).

2. Walk-In Registration

You may register for summer camp at Mottino Family YMCA's Welcome Center desk anytime during regular operation hours.

All enrollments are subject to availability and registrations are not guaranteed.

Medical Release Forms

All campers must complete a medical release/liability waiver at the time of registration. Download a form at home or pick one up at the Welcome Center during regular business hours.

Campers who have not completed a YMCA medical release/liability waiver will not be permitted to participate in our program until the form is completed by a parent or legal guardian. Be sure to include the names of authorized adults as they appear on their photo IDs so that pick-up is a smooth process.

special needs / inclusion

The Joe and Mary Mottino Family YMCA tries to accommodate all campers into our programs. Accommodations for your child will depend on availability, what camps are best suited for your child, your child’s needs and the Y’s resources. Due to high demand and our commitment to serving as many campers as possible, the number of weeks for one-on-one assistance per camper are limited. An inclusion intake form must be filled out and submitted to the camp department prior to registration. Evaluation of registration materials takes approximately two weeks to process. Inclusion Intake Forms can be found here on our website, link below, or at the Service Center. Our Inclusion Program is made possible by generous donations to our Annual Support Campaign.
