Y Adventure Camp

Fun + Adventure at Rock Point

Y Adventure Camp at Rock Point is our co-ed summer day camp for kids who have completed 2nd grade through age 13.

This camp takes place on the beautiful Rock Point property on the shores of Lake Champlain. Campers spend most of the day outside, and will have a chance to tend the gardens, use the outdoor pizza oven, swim, kayak, paddleboard, play games, create arts and crafts, do STEM activities, hike, and much more. This is a traditional outdoor camp full of fun and adventure. We appreciate the collaboration with Rock Point that allows us to access this incredible property at the reduced rate they extend to us as a community partner.

Campers bring lunch and two healthy snacks each day.

Financial Assistance

Thanks to the generous support of donors, the Greater Burlington YMCA provides financial assistance to families for whom the full cost of 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. If you plan on applying for financial assistance, please reach out to [email protected] before you register. 

Financial Assistance Applications are due by 4/15. No applications will be accepted after 4/15. All applicants will receive a response on their awarded amounts no later than 4/26. Please reach out to the Business Office with questions regarding financial aid [email protected].

Financial Policies + FAQs

The Y requires that payment be made by credit card/debit card, money order, or bank draft from a checking or savings account. You will be charged on a Friday, 10 days prior to the week you are registered for. (Example: For camp the week of June 24 you would be charged Friday June 14.) If your payment is declined, the Y will attempt to reprocess the payment one additional time before contacting you. 

Please submit a Child Care EFT Authorization Form with your program application to the Y at 298 College Street, Burlington, VT 05401. You may also email your EFT Form to the Business Systems Office at [email protected].

Camps must be paid in full before attending camp. Payment plans can be discussed with the Business Systems Office. 

If your payment declines, the Y will notify you of the decline and balance amount due. It is your responsibility to communicate with the Y’s Business Systems office to ensure your balance is paid in full. If there is a lack of communication and your balance is not paid in full, the Y reserves the right to cancel your enrollment in the program. The child’s enrollment in any other Y program will not be permitted until the account is paid in full. It is the sincere wish of the Y that none of the above steps will need to be taken. We appreciate you keeping your account up to date. Please contact the Y immediately if your financial circumstances change and you are unable to make your tuition payments, prior to your weekly or monthly withdrawal.

Unlike the Y’s Camp Koda, Y Adventure Camp is not a state-licensed program. As such, families cannot use subsidy funds received through the Vermont State Child Care Financial Assistance program. Please check out our Camp Koda program or inquire about Y financial assistance.

In keeping with the Y’s commitment to serve families regardless of their ability to pay, partial scholarships may be available to those who qualify for tuition assistance. We welcome you to contact the Business Systems Office at [email protected] or 802-652-8190.
