  • My local YMCA has rates based on income. And they offer scholarships for low income kids to go to day camp in the summer if they qualify. But every location is different.

  • I remember qualifying back in the 90's for that and I think I only paid like $40 per month for my 3 children to take swim lessons, attend before & after school care, and attend their summer day camp. This was up in ME and we had an awesome Y. Check with yours to find honestly does not hurt to ask!
