YMCA-YWCA  Registration Policy

The customer agrees that by completing registration and making payment into a single activity or multiple activities with the YMCA-YWCA that they immediately become subject to the activity or program specific cancellation and refund policy.

Camp Cancellation and Refund Policy

Cancellations received by May 1st are subject to a 25% administration fee of the total camp cost including future payments. After May 1st camp fees are non-refundable.  All requests must be submitted by email to This includes all non-medical refund requests including but not limited to those due to camp space being unavailable for friends, siblings, and/or due to other summer opportunities becoming available outside of Camp Thunderbird programs.  The YMCA-YWCA of Vancouver Island follows all Public Health Officer orders.

Medical cancellations will qualify for a refund of the unused portion of the program, less a $50 administration fee. In some cases, a doctor’s note will be required, at the discretion of the Camp Managers.

No refunds will be issued in instances where a camper is removed during a camp program at the choice or request of the camper or camper’s parent(s)/guardian(s) or is dismissed from camp for contravention of the camp commitment.

Waitlists – Updated July 6

Is the camp you wanted full… using the Online Service Portal you can add your camper to waiting lists.

If a space becomes available we will email you with a time frame to complete registration for your camper.  If we do not hear from you we will assume you do not want the space and offer the space to the next camper.

Updated July 6 – due to the on-going staffing challenges we must alter our waitlist protocols to ensure we are able to fill our camp programs.

More than 8 days before camp starts: 24 hour window to register.

Less than 7 days before camp starts:  we will contact all campers on the waitlist, spaces will be filled by the first respondent.
