YMCA thinks every kid deserves a chance to get out of the city. Just 86 miles northwest of New York City in Huguenot, NY, the YMCAs Camp McAlister, Camp Talcott and Camp Greenkill offer great camps for great children to have the experience of a lifetime. As New York City parents contemplate cutting sleepaway camp out of the family budget this year, the YMCA of Greater New York, announced a new tiered-tuition system designed to make camp more affordable.
The new, honor code tiered-tuition system provides families (who do not want to apply for the YMCAs needs-based financial aid) with an easier way to afford summer camp this season.
There are three tiers of tuition. For example, the three payment options for a two-week session of sleepaway camp are $1378, $1178 and $978. Unlike a need-based scholarship program, families will choose their own tier based on their ability to pay. All children will receive the same camp experience, regardless of their tuition tier.
Parents can learn more about the new tiered pricing structure and YMCA Camps by calling 1-877-30-YCAMP or logging on to www.ymcanyc.org/camps.
