The YMCA of Southern Arizona has created a tiered pricing structure to accommodate all families during these challenging time. Please take a moment to look at the rate descriptions below and determine which of the three prices your family is able to pay for your child’s camp experience. Price selection is done strictly on an honor system. If you can afford to pay the full fee (Tier A), please do so. If you cannot, simply select the price which is right for your family’s circumstances. There is no difference in the camp experience for campers registered at different tiers and tier selection is kept confidential.

If you receive reimbursement from a 3rd party agency such as DES, proper authorization is required before registering.  Click here for more information.
