Camp Neehi for Ages 3-5



Neehi Summer Day Camp: Ages 3-5

Our Camp Neehi program will help give your child a place to have new adventures, develop new friendships, learn new skills and have tons of fun in a safe environment led by caring Y staff. Summer is a time for kids to be kids. And our YMCA Camp Neehi is the place to make each precious summer day a great one for every kid.


Parent Handbooks, Registration paperwork and Financial Assistance applications can be downloaded using the buttons at the top of this page.

All paperwork must be completed and returned when registering your child. No exceptions! We must have this information on file before camp begins.

Fees must be paid by the Friday prior to the week you wish your child to attend.

Any payments made after Friday at 9:00 p.m. will be assessed a $15 late fee per child.

Financial Assistance

The YMCA believes that every child should have the opportunity to attend camp and make great summer memories. Support from the YMCA’s Annual Campaign allows us to provide financial assistance to those who qualify. Forms are available at the Service Desk or online. The deadline for applications is two weeks prior to the start of your child’s first day of camp. Please read the application carefully and return all necessary documents along with the application. If you have any questions about this process, please contact: Adele Taylor – Preschool/Family Director
