Registrations are not complete until deposits are made. Prior to processing registrations, accounts are reviewed for outstanding balances. Registration cannot be processed until past-due balances are reconciled.

Priority Registration

While we anticipate two sessions of our 2021 camp season, we are also making plans based on the current realities the pandemic has presented. In being transparent to our families, we might need to make changes to the dates and/or session lengths due to state regulations or medical needs. If we have to limit capacities or make changes, we will contact families based on the date they registered for camp to discuss their options, including their desire to potentially change sessions.

Refer a Friend Discount

Any current camper who refers a first-time camper (not a sibling and must be a new family to CYJ) who attends CYJ 2021 will receive a $100 tuition credit.  There is no limit on the number of tuition credits a camper may receive. This fee is not valid for cash and may not be used toward your deposit. The referring camper must attend camp to get the tuition credit. If the referred camper cancels, the credit will be removed. Please email the names of campers you have referred to Kevin at Those families must indicate that you referred them when they register.

Sibling Discount

A $100 discount will be applied to a family’s account for each additional child registered after the first camper.

Tuition Assistance

Families applying for tuition assistance must provide a deposit of $300 at the time of registration. Families are required to have a payment plan set up with CYJ for the application to be finalized and for a tuition assistance application to be accepted. For policies regarding the tuition assistance process, please click here for more information.  The application process will close on February 15.
