Overnight Camp Add-Ons

Stay-Over Weekend $180

Please note that Stay-Over Weekends occur only on the weekends between sessions. If your child is a 4-, 6-, or 8-week camper and you do not sign up for a stay-over weekend, we will assume that you’re taking your child home for the weekend. If you choose to have your child stay over, you may visit them on Sunday from 9:30AM – 3PM. Please contact the office with any additional questions.  Stayover weekends are available on July 6-7 (between Sessions 1 & 2), July 20-21 (between Sessions 2 & 3) and August 3-4 (between Sessions 3 & 4).

Stay-Over Weekend is already included in the CIT Program’s cost.

Financial Assistance

Here at YMCA Camp Mason we understand that sometimes everyone needs a hand. We recognize that families have different circumstances at home and that it might influence a family’s ability to pay for camp. We believe that every child deserves the chance to go to summer camp; as a non-profit YMCA organization we work very hard to supply assistance to families that demonstrate a need. We provide more than $250,000 worth of assistance every year – our Annual Fund raises money throughout the year to support this important part of our mission.  If you would like to apply for assistance, please click HERE.
