Does my child need a membership to go to camp? 

  • Yes, to register for Mountain Mist Day Camp, your child must have an up to date membership at the Meriden or New Britain-Berlin YMCA.
  • Your child would need to be part of a family membership or have their own youth membership. 
  • If your child had a membership in the past and needs to reactivate and update it, call us at 203.235.6386 and we can help over the phone.
  • If your child does not have a membership now, come to the Meriden YMCA to sign them up before you register for camp. For first time camp families who do not have a membership already, contact the Y about our special new camp family membership rate. 

Registration Information

  • Register online. Please scroll down and watch the tutorial on how to register.
  • If you are unable to register online from your home, please contact us at 203.235.6386 to make an appointment or register for an appointment to complete your registration at the Meriden YMCA. 
  • Camp Scholarships - If you are applying for a Camp Scholarship, your scholarship must be approved before registering. Send a copy of your 2020 tax information to mmdaycamp@meridenymca.org first to pre-qualify and a camp staff member will follow up with you, let you know if you qualify, and explain how to register.
  • Registration deadline - If you want your child to start on the first day of the camp session you are registering for, your complete registration including the medical form must be in by noon on the Friday before the session. If you register your child Friday after 12:00 p.m. - Sunday at 12:00 p.m. before a session starts, your child will start camp on Tuesday. Please note all camp payments must be made in full before the camper attends camp unless other arrangements have been made. 
  • Balances - Any back balances on your account must be paid before you can register for this summer.
  • Camp payments - All camp payments must be made in full before the camper attends camp unless other arrangements have been made. Camp payments are auto-drafted weekly so camp is paid for by the start of camp.   
  • Medical forms - If you attended last year, that medical form is still valid. Medical forms are good for three years. If you are new to camp or your medical form needs to be updated, print the form, have your doctor sign it, drop off the signed form at the Y front desk or in the Y mailbox, or email it to the camp nurse at mmnurse@meridenymca.org.
  • Medication - If your child needs to take medication at camp and/or has a care plan, information will be announced for drop off dates and times at Mountain Mist prior to the beginning of the camp session.
  • How To Register Video - Please note when the video was made it included bus transportation information. At this time, due to the current guidelines, we are unable to offer bus transportation. Parents will drop off and pick up their campers. If that changes we will communicate this to camp families. Please click on the link below to view the video.
