Does my child need a membership to go to camp?
- To register for Mountain Mist Day Camp, your child must have a current 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.
- You do not need a membership if you are using the Camp Voucher or Campership Scholarship. You would only need a membership if you signed up for additional sessions beyond those programs.
- The CT Lions Club Pathfinders Camp does not require campers to have a 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.
- Before you register, have your camp selection and bus information ready.
- Register online from the comfort of your home. Watch How to Register Online for 2022 Mountain Mist Day Camp.
- If you are unable to register online from your home, please contact us at 203.235.6386 to make 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 tax information to firstname.lastname@example.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. All camp balances must be paid one week before the start of the session the camper is registered for.
- 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.
- Camp policies - Read the 2022 Mountain Mist Parent and Staff Handbook before you register.
