Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What if I haven’t selected a payment plan or completed the online registration process?

In order for your child to be “approved” for camp, all registration information, a payment plan selected and a deposit must be made. Please log back in to your Parent Dashboard and complete the registration process.

There will no longer be an on­site or new registration at camp. (See drop off & pick up directions below)

My child is gluten and nut free does he/she need to supply her own food and snacks?

Our Y Camps are peanut free. Gluten free meals are available at every meal and snack. However for those with very serious allergies you are welcome to bring your own.

What if there is an emergency and I need to contact my child at camp? (Cellular phone reception is poor)

Parents can call 831-­722-­8222 the guest office is open during day hours.

How do I make sure my child with special needs will be setup well for camp?

Please communicate with the staff and the child’s counselor what accommodations your childmay need. Having a Special Assistant (buddy) is a great way to ensure your child is set­up for success. A waiver form is required and supplied as part of the online registration. The special assistant can register online. They must complete the registration and screening process to be approved for the camp.

What are the directions for dropping off my camper?

There are two drop-off procedures available to parents for drop off.

Fast Track – This is a curbside drop off. You will need the following

  • Camping gear
  • A hug good­bye!

Campers will be met by greeters and/or your Special Assistant and walked to your cabin where the counselor and other campers will be. There they will receive their t­shirt, journal & camp packet.

Temporary Parking -­ for those with medication. You will need the following:

  • Medication for the nurse
  • Hard copy of Administration of Medication form
  • Camping gear
  • A hug good­bye!

For temporary parking, all prescription medications need a physician signature for the camp nurses to disperse (download “Administration of Medication” form). Please upload a soft copy in addition to bringing a hard copy for check-in. Over the counter medication will be supplied as approved by you in your camper’s registration medication section. For the safety of others, all medication must be checked in to the nurse.
