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 Campership Scholarship. You will need a membership if you sign up for additional sessions using our financial aid program. 
  • 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, ask about our special new camp family membership rate. This special rate is good for one year. Contact Sarah at 203-235-6386.

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 your child has attended Mountain Mist in the past, please email the nurse at mmnurse@meridenymca.org to make sure your medical form is up to date. 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.
