CLOSURE UPDATE: Per mandate from Governor Polis, and because it is the right thing to do, our facilities are closed. Check here for COVID-19 updates. We are running licensed summer camps beginning June 1.


Due to COVID-19, Teen Camp is canceled this summer.

The Y has an excitement-packed, option-filled summer planned for local teens. We have something for everyone and a variety of new choices that will leave teens thrilled no matter their interests, passions and preferences. Whether campers are looking for amusement park thrills or they want to explore, ride or climb to new heights, teens can choose their adventure at the Y this summer. Held in Boulder.

Meets at Platt Middle School (sessions 3-10) and the Mapleton Y (sessions 11-12).

Registration System

Register for summer camps online. If you create a new account in our online registration system using a different email address than what is on file with the Y, you will create a duplicate account and if you’re a member, you will not receive member rates.

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 are available for CCAP participants and upon request. Contact the Business Office.

Financial Assistance


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.
