Registration information

Registering for the Inclusion Program:

Step 1:

In order to begin the registration process for our inclusion program, we require that all families complete and submit a Request for Participation package.

This form allows us to assess the individual needs of each camper and to ensure that we have the resources to meet them. 

Step 2:

The documents must be submitted by email to the following email address:

In order for our Day Camp Inclusion program to properly assess the needs of your child, the two forms included in this package must be completed by the child’s parent/guardian and by a professional who works directly with the child and is able to assess them in a group setting (i.e. therapist, teacher, educator, etc.).

Please ensure that all of the necessary documentation is included and the forms are filled out before submitting your Request for Participation package. It is important to ensure all mandatory fields in the request forms have been completed prior to submitting the documents. These fields are identified with an asterisk (*).

Step 3:

The need and eligibility for a companion will only be assessed once all required documentation has been submitted and all mandatory fields have been completed.

Once submitted, an e-mail response will be sent out approximately 10 days following the submission.

Step 4:

Please note that the YMCA Day Camps are getting a new registration system: Avocado.

In order to complete a registration to our inclusion program, a profile must be created in our Avocado system.

Once a confirmation e-mail has been received regarding our assessment of your child’s needs, based on the Request for Participation package; an online registration, as well as a payment, will be required within 10 days of receiving the initial confirmation email.

If a family does not complete the online registration within 10 days of receiving a confirmation email, the available support will be offered to another family.

Please note: you cannot complete an online registration until your Request for Participation forms have been sent by email and the request has been confirmed with an email from our administrative team. Any online registration made without following these initial steps does not qualify as a registration to our program or camps.
