Before you register your child for Summer Camp at Young Americans Center, please read through the important information below.

Young Americans Center plans to hold in-person Summer Camps in 2021.  We will continue to follow direction from local and state health officials, and we will practice the following measures this year:

  • Camp sizes are limited to accommodate social distancing
  • All staff and participants are required to wear masks
  • Drop-off and pick-up will occur outside the building
  • Regular cleaning and surface sanitation

We will also continue to evaluate and update our procedures as necessary to keep staff and participants safe.  Here is a list of procedures we used last year which will guide our policies and procedures this year.

Refund/Cancellation Policy

Cancellations made 30 days or more prior to the start of camp will receive a full refund.  Cancellations made within 30 days of camp starting will receive a partial refund: the original cost of the camp minus $100 (for example, if the original cost of the camp was $250, the family will receive a refund of $150).  No refunds will be given once the camp has begun.  To make any changes or to cancel registration, written notice is required and should be provided to Jeremy Ollie, jollie@yacenter.org.  If Young Americans cancels a program due to insufficient enrollment, you will receive a full refund.

Parent Dashboard

In the Young Americans Center Camps and Classes Parent Dashboard, parents/guardians can:

  • update camper information
  • add, modify, or remove individuals authorized for pick-up
  • enroll in additional camps and classes
  • and much, much more!

Information about how to login to the Parent Dashboard arrives in your email.  Follow the prompts to change your password after logging in for the first time.  For additional questions, contact us during business hours at 303-321-2265 or jollie@yacenter.org.

Attendance

Daily program activities build upon each other, so attendance every day is strongly encouraged.

Age of Participants

Each program is grade-specific, so participants must have completed one of the suggested grades in order to enroll.

Operations

Participants will be assigned to a focus group that will meet at the beginning and end of each day.  If your child is attending camp with a friend and is interested in being in the same group, please note that on your registration.  A snack and drink will be provided each day, but participants may bring their own snack if desired.  Candy and other treats may be awarded in some activities.  All snacks and drinks are peanut free.  Participants must bring a sack lunch each day that doesn’t require a microwave.

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is available to those who qualify. Contact Programs Registration for more information: jollie@yacenter.org.

Confirmation

Confirmation and final paperwork will be e-mailed to you within 24 hours of receipt of your registration. If you believe you’ve registered but haven’t received a confirmation email, please contact Programs Registration at jollie@yacenter.org as soon as possible.
