We strive to make camp accessible to all. To the extent possible, financial assistance is available thanks in part to generous donors & grants. The Financial Assistance forms are available online and at the membership desk. If you already receive FA for Membership, you still need to submit supporting documentation.   

FA for Summer Camp may be a different percentage than you are receiving for Membership (if applicable). FA is awarded by percentage, this year the maximum a family can receive is 50% per session.  Please submit forms in person at our Main Post Gym by April 15th. You will be notified by May 1st regarding your application status. In order to reserve your camp, you must place a $35.00 for each camp and have a billing method on file.
