Refunds and Transfers*
Requests for refunds must be made in writing – by mail, email or fax. The camp fee per session, less a deposit of 25%, will be refunded if requested with a minimum of two weeks’ notice. No refunds are offered after the applicable deadline.
Requests for transfers must be made in writing – by mail, email or fax. Deposits are non-transferable. There is a $10 fee for transfers between sessions. All transfers must be completed at least two weeks prior to the session start date.
* There are no refunds for children who are asked to leave camp due to behavioral issues.
At the Y, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience camp. Thanks to the generous support of donors and various fundraising initiatives year-round, we are able to provide financial assistance for families who otherwise could not afford the experience for their children.
For more information, please call your local Y (Neighbourhood Day Camps) or 613-832-1234 (Camp Otonabee).
Evelyne E. Laishley Campership Fund (Camp Otonabee only)
Through a generous legacy gift left by Evelyne E. Laishley (1913-2008), an annual camp sponsorship fund has been established to help underprivileged children and youth experience summer camp. Eligible participants can apply (through a sponsoring agency) for up to two weeks at the Y's Camp Otonabee. Please note that families who have accessed other Y camp sponsorship programs in the same season will not be eligible for additional support. This fund is offered in partnership with United Way/Centraide Ottawa.
