Parent Handbook

Please review the parent handbook for check-in/check-out times, packing lists, procedures and more. It covers everything parents and kids needs to know to have a fun and safe experience at camp.

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.

COVID Policies

Please review our safety protocols regarding COVID-19.

Bicycle Inspection

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