A lot! Camp has renovated the interiors of all its cabins since 2019. In 2022 we will reach the end of this improvement. This means all our indoor spaces have AC, new floors, bunks, siding, lighting and more! It looks sooo nice. Not only that but many other spaces have seen a face lift in the last year.
There are many ways! You can call Camp and register over the phone (which is helpful if you have many questions since the Camp staff are the experts 🙂 ), you can quickly sign up online, or you can sign up at a Y branch!
A $50 deposit is required PER WEEK for all overnight camps. This will ensure your spot is reserved in the week you choose. It is applied towards your total balance.
To receive the Y Member pricing, it must be a Family Membership – youth memberships will not apply. If you sign up less than two weeks prior to your camp, you must pay in full upon registration.
By filling out his Financial Assistance Form and turning it in here! If you’re a Y member and are getting an income based discount, that same percentage will apply towards Camp! Add-on’s are not eligible for scholarship i.e. paintball and weekend stayovers.
Camp will contact you via email and send the forms you need, These are also available on our website here and under forms and resources. You will need a Health Form for all camps. This is filled out by a parent or guardian. They will also need a physical that has been done within the last 12 months of their camp dates. You’ll also receive the Parent Packet that tells you more about camp and what to bring, the check in and out process, and more! These forms can all be found under the Files & Forms tab.
Your balance must be paid in full before your child attends camp. When you register, you can schedule to make auto payments if that is easiest for you! If you sign up less than two weeks prior to your camp, you must pay in full upon registration.
Some very important items are a water bottle, sunscreen, swimsuit, towel, and clothes they can play in! You can find the full list in the Parent Packet!
You can see a schedule in this handy dandy Parent Packet!
Drop off begins at 2pm on Sunday at Camp Winona. Please note that each age group has a different drop off time to cut down on wait time. This is available in the Parent Packet. Pick up is at 5pm on Friday.
Whoever picks your child up will need a photo ID, and to be on the list of approved people for pick up.
Overnight Campers can purchase snacks as well as merchandise like t-shirts, bandanas, keychains, etc. We recommend putting $25-$50 into their account if they want to purchase snacks and merchandise. There are NO refunds on any remaining balance. You can also put together care packages to drop off at check in that can be delivered during the week. We’ll be open during check out for parents to shop as well.
A camp staff member will contact you about a week prior via email with the necessary information leading up to camp. While at camp we post photos on Facebook and Instagram for you to follow along and enjoy. You can send emails to campwinona@VFYMCA.org.
New camp families will receive a 48 phone call from a Leadership Staff member relaying their camper’s experience.
You will be contacted if your camper has a medical or behavior issue. Please know that minor scraps and bumps are possible, if not probable at camp. Campers are also still learning social skills. As your camper navigates these experiences there are medical staff and trained counselors to help them learn and overcome. For these typical camp experiences camp will not contact you. If your camper is unwell for an extended period, gains a significant injury, a problem arises in the cabin, or is exhibiting continuous behavioral issues you will be contacted.
Camp will be hosting Open Houses in 2022 to give you a chance to see the Camp, facilities and talk to Camp staff!
Family Camp is Memorial Day weekend – this is a PERFECT way to see Camp and get to enjoy all the activities as a family! We also have mini weekend camps for the kids to test it out solo, and we’ll have Family Fun Days!
The safety of our campers, staff, and their families is always the top priority for us, and for the Volusia Flagler Family YMCA. If we can’t do it safely, we won’t do it. We consult with the Florida Health Department, the American Camping Association, and other Camp’s around the country.
