Best Summer Ever

Update on summer camps as of June 24, 2020:

Our Summer Camp program will be held from July 6 to August 28 this year, and we are getting ready to have the best summer ever with our campers.

If you are sending your child to our camp this summer, please read our Parent Health and Safety Guide here.

We currently have select spots available for campers entering kindergarten through sixth grade. All of our camp programs are being held at our main Y building at 1340 Martine Avenue in Scotch Plains and will run from 9am to 4pm, Monday through Friday. Extended AM and PM care will not be available this summer. A tentative daily camp schedule can be found here.

Our Camp Team has been working closely with experts in the camping field and Y-USA on ways to safely run camp this summer. Y-USA has been working with the American Camping Association and CDC and together they have hired Environmental Health and Engineering (EH&E), to work on safety procedures and protocols. We also will be following the state’s guidelines for running summer camp. Your child’s health and safety is our main priority.

Registration for our camps is done on a weekly basis for the 8 weeks our camps are being held. Families are encouraged to sign up now for any camp weeks they would like to participate in. All camps will be our base price of $277 per week for FSPY members and $297 per week for program members. You must be an active member of our Y or a program member to participate in camp. For questions regarding membership, please contact Kristine Keating at kkeating@fspymca.org.

Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. A member of our Summer Camp Team will be in contact within 48 hours to inform you of camp availability and your registration status.

To register for our camps this summer, please fill out our forms here and email them to both kkeating@fspymca.org and jmcmanus@fspymca.org. Please fill out one form per child.

Once we receive your application, you will be charged for the weeks we have available spots and added to a wait list for those in which space is currently unavailable. Where payment is past due, you will be charged in full for those weeks, and will be charged a $50 deposit for those that are not yet due in full. A camp payment schedule can be found here.

For questions regarding our camps, please reach out to Katie Dudas at kdudas@fspymca.org or James McManus at jmcmanus@fspymca.org.

Information for families who registered for camp prior to our COVID-19 closure:

We are now planning to start summer camp on Monday, July 6, which would have been Week 2 of our camp season. If your child was enrolled in Week 1 of Camp, we will be placing a system credit on your Y account for the deposit fee.

Please note: We are continuing with our original camp payment schedule. You can view the schedule here. If your membership was on hold, it also will be re-activated starting July 1 and payment for July will be drafted on the 15th.
