Many different program options are available for our campers.  Please read through our program descriptions to select the appropriate program for your child.  Registration is open and continues until programs fill.

Watchaug Day Camp is a 2-week summer camp experience (Only Sessions A & F are 1 week sessions).  Two weeks are highly encouraged to create positive group dynamics, teamwork and close friendships with all campers in the group.  We do allow families to register for just one week of a 2-Week Traditional Camp session. If splitting a 2-week Traditional Camp session, we highly encourage you to choose the 1st week of a two-week session– especially for new campers.  Some campers will struggle coming into the 2nd week of a two-week session.   This option is NOT available for Water Sports.

Cancellation/Refund Policy

Cancellation of a session by a participant will result in a full refund, minus the non-refundable registration fee and deposit.    No refunds are given once the session begins.

Y-Cares Financial Assistance

Through generous volunteer support we are able to send children to camp every summer who may not have afforded our programs otherwise.  The Ocean Community YMCA offers financial assistance through our Y-Cares Program for families who qualify.  If you need assistance with or have questions about the application please don’t hesitate to contact us.  If you would like to donate to our Campership Fund please make a pledge on the registration form, through our website, or at the Y.
