Summer 2021 Registration Open

Published Thursday, October 29, 2020 9:00 am

*PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE MESSAGE FOR IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING REGISTRATION FOR SUMMER 2021 AND PROGRAM DETAILS.

YMCA Storer Camps is pleased to open registration for our 104th summer season in 2021.  We are excited to again welcome campers to the banks of Stony Lake for another great summer.

Due to the uncertainty of the length of the COVID-19 pandemic and when a vaccine will be available to all populations, we will be running Summer 2021 with reduced capacities in cabins and heavy mitigation practices.  As one of the only YMCA camp in the state of Michigan to run overnight programming in 2020, we are confident in our ability to provide a safe and FUN experience for our campers.

Dates, rates and program information can be found at www.ymcastorercamps.org.  Registration can also be completed on our website or by calling the office at 517-536-8607.  Normal office hours are Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm.  If no one is available when you call, please dial extension 206 when prompted and we will return your call.

A deposit of $150 is required when registering.  Due to limited capacities for Summer 2021, these deposits are non-refundable.  You may also pay the full amount due at registration.  If you decide to cancel your registration at any time, you will be refunded the amount you have paid except for the $150 deposit.  Final payments for programs are due on Friday, May 21, 2021.

*IF YOU HAVE SYSTEM CREDIT FROM SUMMER 2020, YOU MUST CALL OUR OFFICE TO REGISTER FOR SUMMER 2021.  (ONLINE REGISTRATION WILL NOT TAKE INTO ACCOUNT YOUR CREDIT AND YOU WILL BE CHARGED FULL PRICE.)

For those who have a “full-session system credit” (your camper was signed up for a one- or two-week session of Summer 2020, fully paid and then opted out and chose to have a system credit rather than be refunded), your Summer 2020 rate is locked in for Summer 2021.  This does not apply to any campers who have a “partial-session system credit” (e.g. your camper’s deposit was paid in Summer 2020 but full payment was either not received or refunded).  Please contact our office at 517-536-8607 with any questions you have regarding system credit balances.

Financial assistance applications for Summer 2021 are available to be submitted at this time.  The form can be downloaded from the YMCA Storer Camps website.  Applications take roughly two to six weeks to review and be approved and require a $50 refundable deposit fee.  If you are applying for financial assistance, please do not register your camper online; approval of the application automatically enrolls your camper.

We are here to make the registration process for Summer 2021 as easy as possible for you.  Please contact us with any questions you may have by calling our office at 517-536-8607 or emailing us at storer@ymcastorercamps.org

 
Summer 2021 Programming

YMCA Storer Camps will be offering six weeks of overnight camping in Summer 2021.  Children ages 7 to 17 have multiple options of how they can spend one or two weeks at camp.

All programming will be house on the North Center of camp.  Cabins will be filled at reduced capacity.  Cabin groups will be assigned daily activities and travel as a “cabin pod” throughout the day.  Meal times in Malachi Dining Hall will be split to allow for less congregation inside and time to thoroughly sanitize all eating surfaces and utensils. 

The Pathfinder and Outback trip to the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes is suspended for Summer 2021.  An alternative activity to replace this trip is to be determined.  The Ranch Rough Riders trip to the Waterloo State Recreation Area is also canceled with alternative programming being planned.

New for Summer 2021 is a one-week Pathfinder and Outback session.  This new one-week session will focus on the survival skills typically learned in preparation for the Up North trip and culminate in a special day-long program to utilize the newly-learned skills.

All Ranch programs will be housed on the North Center of camp.  Ranch campers will have meals served in Malachi Dining Hall while being taken to Ranch Camp for programming, with the exception of a few lunch meals.

 

Family Camp

Family Camp will be Sunday, July 4th to Friday, July 9th.  Registration information will be released in early 2021.
