SWIM TEST:

All participants in Adventure Camp and Sports Camp will be tested to determine their swimming ability prior to entering the pool. This testing includes swimming crawl stroke with rotary breathing for 40 feet, treading water for 60 seconds in the deep end, and swimming on their back for 40 feet.  Participants that fail the test will be required to swim in the shallow end only. This test will be performed at the YMCA Pool.

 

 

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE:

 

The Greensburg YMCA strives to never turn any child away due to the families’ inability to pay for programming. With that in mind we will accept two forms of assistance in defraying the costs of camp. One way is through the YMCA Annual Support Campaign. The YMCA is able to grant scholarships to families in need due to the generosity of local businesses and individuals who donate monies to the campaign.  We encourage those who may not be able to afford camp services on their own to complete a Financial Assistance Application and submit it to the Welcome Center of the YMCA. Please allow up to four weeks for processing.  Additionally both Adventure Camp and Sports Camp held at the Greensburg YMCA location accept payment from Early Learning Resource Center (ELRC).  Families should contact ELRC of Westmoreland County to inquire if they are qualified (724-836-4580).
