We understand that families have differing abilities to pay for camp. In an effort to make camp more accessible for all families we use a tiered-based pricing system. Please choose the tier that is most suitable for your family. All children will have the same experience no matter which tier a family selects. Tier selections are confidential and can be entered while registering online. Families with a total household income up to $80,000 qualify for the Open Doors program. If your family does not qualify there may be other funding options available by a generous donation from the Peach Pit Foundation. Please contact us for more information.
Tiered Pricing - Making Camp Possible
YMCA Camp Ingersoll has instituted a voluntary tiered pricing program that allows families the flexibility of choosing a price that fits best with their budget.
TIER A - Based on the True Cost of campers participating in the selected programs. It includes direct expenses, field trips, buses, special guests and long-term wear and tear. If you are able to pay this amount, please do so.
TIER B - A more heavily subsidized rate (11% discount of each traditional camp session) for families whose children may not be able to attend camp otherwise. If you’re unable to afford Tier A, please pay this amount. Thank you.
TIER C - Open Doors - Families with a Total Household Income up to $80,000 are eligible for enrollment. This option provides more substantial financial assistance for families who qualify for need greater than the subsidized rates above. Families fill out an application based on their Total Household Income and are provided assistance on a sliding scale. Applications can be found at CampIngersoll.org, by calling, or by visiting the YMCA.
The Mid Fund - Thanks to a generous donor we are able to provide funding for middle income families through the Mid-Fund. This fund was created specifically for middle income families who do not qualify for financial aid but still find it difficult to pay for camp, especially due to layoffs or unforeseen circumstances. Families that are interested in hearing more about the mid-fund should contact our Camp Registrar, Helen Peaslee at 860-342-2267 or .
During these uncertain economic times we are committed to ensuring that every child has the opportunity to experience the magic of summer camp! You’ll notice we added a new contribution line to the application. We encourage families who are able to provide a gift, to please do so, 100 percent of the money raised will go to our camper scholarships.
Last year we gave more than $100,000 in scholarships to more than 150 campers from assistance provided by the Middlesex United Way, the Middletown Exchange Club, the YMCA, the Sate of Connecticut, Peach Pit Foundation, and private contributions.
