Financial Assistance

Y financial assistance participants may register online after their financial assistance has been approved. CCAP participants may not register online but must use the online ePACT system for required medical and emergency contact information and policy agreements. CCAP participants must attend all days they are registered for. CCAP participants will be billed for unexcused absences.

Paper registration forms will be available for CCAP participants and upon request. Coming soon.

ePACT

The YMCA of Northern Colorado uses ePACT, a secure emergency network that we use to collect medical and emergency contact information for camps, preschool and before and after school care. Once you’re set up in ePACT, you will only need to verify your child’s information once a year.
