YMCA CAMP ABNAKI--RESIDENT CAMP
Two easy ways to register. Select one of the links at the bottom of this page.
Registration begins on Monday, November 2, 2015. Campers are admitted on a first come basis. Financial aid is available for all 2016 sessions. See below for a full explanation of camp costs and fees.
Tiered pricing at Camp Abnaki
Realizing that families have differing abilities to pay, Camp Abnaki has a voluntary 3-tier pricing program.
Price A is our historically low rate, and does not reflect the true operating cost of camp. Price B more accurately accounts for our true costs, including wear & tear and depreciation. Price C allows us to cover long term depreciation and growth.
By choosing to pay a slightly higher fee, families can help us keep the cost of attending camp low.
This program is voluntary and in no way influences the experience children receive, yet it offers the opportunity for families to take an active role in supporting the true cost of their child's camp experience. Partial financial assistance is available for anyone who is interested.

Any unused store money is nonrefundable.
Discounts: Families may receive the following discounts, if eligible. Financial aid applicants are not eligible for discounts, as they are incorporated into financial aid offers.
Multiple child discount: When registering more than one child per family for camp, each camper after the first full-pay registration will receive a discount of $100 (one-week sessions) or $160 (two-week sessions). Discount applies to the lesser camp fee if registering children for sessions of different length.
YMCA member discount: If you are a member of the Greater Burlington YMCA or your local YMCA, you will receive a one time per family (not camper) discount of $50. Membership must be current, and is subject to verification.
Transportation Fee: Does your son need transportation to camp from Burlington International Airport or Montreal Airport? Camp will provide transportation to/from those locations for a fee. Please provide detailed information on our travel form.
Activity Weekend: If your son is attending camp for more than one session, he can stay at camp for the day between sessions. This activity weekend will include an off-site trip for recreation and opportunities to do laundry and relax. This optional activity weekend has a fee of $85, which covers the entire cost of the weekend. Parents who do not wish for their child to stay at camp during the changeover must pick pick up their son during checkout on Saturday and return to camp during check-in on Sunday. This fee does not apply to the middle weekend of a two week session, only to the weekends between sessions.

Returning families, we have upgraded our software program that registers campers online. We are using a new program so it will seem different than last year. For all families, please note that the dates and rates will appear once you check the resident overnight camp box. In February 2016 when Day Camp registration starts there will be a Day Camp box to check. If you have any questions about the registration process please call the camp office at 802-652-8180.
