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, this camp is canceled. We’re still offering Camp Noco at Pioneer Ridge and the Johnstown Y.

Camp Noco

weld re5j logoAchievers Kindergarten Bootcamp is a springboard to a successful start to school for your little one. Teaching listening, kindergarten readiness and cooperation skills, Achievers Kindergarten Bootcamp gives campers the experiences, tools and tenacity to ready them for their very first day of school. From learning how to stand in line and asking for help, from discovering how to work in a group and developing self-help skills, this camp is all about practicing school. In the afternoons, and on Fridays, campers will enjoy traditional camp activities such as field trips, sports, crafts and more. Achievers Camps are in collaboration with the Weld RE-5J school district.

Held at Pioneer Ridge Elementary in Johnstown. Transportation provided to and from Milliken and Letford Elementary Schools for no additional fee. Bus pick up is at 7:30am. Drop off is no later than 4:15pm.

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.
