Summer Camp Pricing - How It Works

Making Camp affordable and attainable for all kids!

At Wapsie and the Y, we understand families have differing abilities to pay. To better accommodate many income levels, Camp Wapsie has tired pricing levels.  Simply choose the one you can best afford.

How it works...

Tier A most accurately reflects the true and accurate cost of YMCA Camp Wapsie. 
Tier B is partially subsidized rate, but more closely reflects the actual cost of camp. 
Tier C is Camp’s historically subsidized rate, which does not represent the true cost of camp. This rate is subsidized by the work of volunteers, fundraising and sustaining contributions.

Our tiered pricing system in no way influences the experience your child will receive! We want to share the true cost of running Camp Wapsie and give families some choice in how much they can contribute toward their child’s experience. Please select the highest tier you can afford to allow YMCA Camp Wapsie to best stretch out funding and continue to improve the quality of each camper’s experience.
