How do I register?

  • If you register on a Saturday or Sunday before a session start your child can start on Tuesday.
  • If you register online, the only paper you need to print are the medical form, authorization to administer medicine (if needed), and care plans (if needed).
  • If you prefer to register using the paper registration form, you can print them out, complete them, and drop them off in the drop box outside the Y.
  • Instructions are coming soon about when and how medical forms, authorization to administer medicine, care plans, and medicine can be brought by parents/guardians to the Y.
  • Please watch the tutorial below which explains how to register online. (Please note the Camp Sign program referenced in the tutorial ended June 1st.)


Where do I find medical forms and how do I get them to the Y?

  • You will need to print the medical form (and authorization to administer medicine if your child needs it) and have your medical provider complete them. 
  • State law prohibits a child from attending camp without the medical forms completed by a physician within 36 months prior to attending camp. 
  • Medical forms may be dropped off with your camp paperwork in the dropbox at the Y or at the desk when we reopen. 

Please note:

All completed authorization to administer medicine, medicine and care plans must be dropped off to the nurse before camp starts. These forms and medicine cannot be dropped off on the first day of camp.

The last medicine drop off times for Session Two are:

  • Thursday July 2, 6:00 - 8:00 PM at the downtown Y parking lot
  • Friday July 3, 7:30 - 8:30 AM at Mountain Mist
  • Saturday July 4,  8:00 -10:00 AM at the downtown Y parking lot

Where do I find the care plan forms?

  • If your child needs a care plan, you will find the forms below. We will provide instructions soon on how to get these forms and medicine to the Y.
  • Allergy
  • Asthma
  • Behavior
  • Seizure

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 does not have a membership or their membership needs to be updated, please call the Y at 203.235.6386 and we can help you with that before you register online for camp.

When do I need to register my child by and when is payment needed?

  • All registrations must be submitted by 11:00 PM on the Tuesday before the camp session you want your camper to attend.
  • Any back balances must be paid before you can register for this summer.
  • 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.   


How much does camp cost?

  • Please see the Camp Pricing page for details about the fee per camp session, camp improvement fee, and before and after care.

Are camp scholarships available?


Are free breakfast snack and lunch included again this year?

Is there a bus this year?

Please remember our Mountain Mist Outdoor Center and Day Camp is located in a residential area with a posted speed limit of 25 miles per hour. Please observe the speed limit for everyone’s safety.
