Payments and Refund Policy
The registration fee is $200.
All camp fees must be paid in full at least two weeks prior to the start date of the session the camper is attending.
If a registration is cancelled, all fees that have been paid will be reimbursed.
All refunds and cancellations must be requested in writing. If a cancellation is requested after the start date of the camp, it will be prorated according to the number of days your child was present at camp or the number of days past the first day of the session. Absence from camp does not constitute a withdrawal from the program; you must contact us to obtain your refund.
Cancellations or changes in sessions or programs must be made in writing and will not be accepted over the phone.
Requests can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Camp YMCA Kanawana reserves the right to send a child home in the event of major misconduct (bullying, drug or alcohol use, violence, etc.) or of accumulation of consistent disregard for Camp YMCA Kanawana’s code of conduct. In this case, the parents or guardians must pick up the child as soon as possible. The camp then retains the full amount of fees for their stay.
Every summer Camp YMCA Kanawana proudly welcomes campers (and staff) from all over the world. Over the years, campers and staff have joined our family from the USA, Spain, Mexico, Columbia, England, Australia, France, Brazil, Turkey and Zimbabwe, just to name a few!
Please consult our Parent Handbook (available in Important Documents) for more information about how our camp works and how to contact your child during their stay, as well as information about required insurance and traveling to and from camp for international campers.
Camp YMCA Kanawana can provide a transportation service to and from the Pierre Elliot Trudeau Airport in Montréal for all our international campers (and staff) for an additional fee. If your child needs to be met at the airport, please indicate this on our online registration form and follow the steps outlined in the Parent Handbook.
Camp YMCA Kanawana is an inclusive and welcoming community that does its best to accommodate campers with different needs or diverse abilities. Please note that we try our hardest to accommodate everyone, but resources are limited and our site is on rough terrain (in terms of accessibility for campers with reduced mobility). In order for campers to fully benefit from camp, it is best if the camper is able to participate and go about activities of daily living with minimal support.
So we can best support your child and provide them with a great Camp YMCA Kanawana experience, please tell us as much as possible about your child and their needs by filling out our Request for Participation Form.
Please email email@example.com to receive a copy of the form.
Once we have received the completed forms, we will then assess whether or not we have the services available to accommodate your child.
If we are informed well in advance, we are usually able to accommodate children who require a companion. Please note that we have a limited number of companions available each session.
Because we want as many people as possible to take part in our programs, the YMCA’s financial assistance offers you rates that are adjusted to your income.
The financial assistance promotes equal access to our programs. *
In addition, families can receive financial assistance offered by the Ministry of Education, Recreation and Sports under the Financial Assistance Program, which provides accessibility to summer camps based on your family's income.
For more information, please contact us at

The YMCA will review your request in complete confidentiality.
* This policy cannot be combined with any other discounts.
Some fees are eligible for tax credits for child care expense and children’s physical activities. Certain conditions apply.
