How to Register for Day Camp
- Find a Day Camp Program and Register Online
- In person at the Registration Desk at Toby Wells YMCA
If your camper has any special needs, please let us know when registering. Toby Wells YMCA funds and operates an Inclusion Program that may be able to provide and aide for your camper. For more information regarding the Inclusion Program, please contact Michael Nicoloff at [email protected] or (858) 496-9622
Please note: Full camp balance is due the week before camp. Camp deposits ($50) are non-refundable but are fully transferable (as a new deposit only) into another camp up to the second day of camp (if space is available in the new camp).
Medical Release Form - Required
In order to register, all campers must have a current Medical Release form updated and submitted to the YMCA after January 2021. Medical Release forms can be found at the YMCA Registration Desk or can be downloaded from the form library (see Medical section)
Some specialty camps, particularly those that travel to an off-site location, require an additional vendor waiver. Day camp programs requiring these forms should have a link available to download the waiver as a PDF on the specific Day Camp page — it may also be included within the form library. If it is not present, you can pick on up at the branch when you sign your child in on the first day of camp.
Financial assistance is available to families who qualify. Applications are available at the service desk and online. Assistance is based on verified income and completed applications.

For every session of camp, the Y provides program scholarships for families seeking financial assistance. This is made possible through the generosity of our community. If you wish to help a child go to camp, please see our camp director for information.
We love to hear from our campers and parents! Camp leadership teams use your feedback to make positive changes to our program. Please feel free to contact Camp Director, Michael Nicoloff at [email protected], with any questions, comments or concerns!
