Financial Assistance

State subsidy may be available for qualifying families whose child attends school vacation camps. Additionally, thanks to the generous support of donors, the Greater Burlington YMCA provides financial assistance to families for whom the full cost of vacation camp is a hardship. We do ask that those who receive a Y scholarship pay a portion of the program cost and to please recognize that financial assistance is limited. To apply, please complete the Financial Assistance form at the time of your registration.
