Health History/ePACT

The YMCA of Northern Colorado has adopted ePACT, a secure emergency network that we use to collect medical and emergency contact information electronically. Your child will not be able to participate in Y programs without the required paperwork. 

A physical exam is required for your child to attend camp. The exam must be current within 12-months of the last day your child will attend camp. This Health History form must be completed and signed by a licensed physician. Form must be submitted at least two weeks prior to your child’s session. 

You must complete a state licensed asthma and/or allergy health care plan form and the YMCA’s medical authorization form for any condition requiring medication or emergency treatment. Forms must be submitted at least two weeks prior to your child’s session.

Bicycle Inspection

All campers who are bringing their own bikes to camp, must have a bicycle inspection form completed by a bicycle mechanic.

Financial Assistance

The Y believes all children deserve an overnight camp experience. That's why we provide scholarships to hundreds of campers each summer. For information on YMCA Camp Santa Maria's financial assistance program, email our camp director. 

Changes & Cancelations

If you need to make a change or cancelation, please review our policy and fill out this form.

Camp Store

We have t-shirts, sweatshirts, bracelets, stickers and more, ranging in price from $3 to $50. You can put money in your camper’s account before they arrive, so they can buy goodies throughout the week.

How to Add Funds

When adding funds to your camper’s account, first select “Enroll Now.” Next, you’ll choose your camper from the Participant dropdown. Complete the required fields in the Enrollment Details section, and then select the dollar amount you’d like to add. Finally, add to your cart and check out! Add money to your camper’s account.

Contact our Business Office if you need assistance.


Transportation this year will look different- we will be bussing to and from camp! Be on the lookout for dropoff locations and more information coming soon.
