Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Why is camp registration online?
In past years, paper applications could easily get misplaced, damaged, or turned in without all necessary information. With our online registration, we keep a secure database of information about your camper and can access important information, like medications/allergies/etc, much quicker than a paper application.
Not only did we digitize the camp registration, we also streamlined questions for a quicker application process.
If you need assistance completing your online application, please give the YMCA a call at 909-798-9622 and a member of our team will be able to help.
Where is the drop off/pick up spot for camp?
Drop off is from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on the first day of camp.
Pick up is at 12:00 p.m. at the Highland YMCA
The Highland YMCA is located at 7793 Central Ave, Highland, CA 92346
Can my child bring a cell phone/tablet/laptop to camp?
Should there be a medical or special need regarding technology, please indicate upon registration.
How can I communicate with my camper?
On the Thursday or Friday before your child leaves for camp, mail your letter or package. Mailing an item on this day will allow enough time for the item to arrive before your child returns home. Please do not send packages that require signatures to be obtained from the camp staff. Send your mail (US Postal or UPS) to:
(dates they will be at camp)
42842 Jenks Lake Road East
Angelus Oaks, CA 92305
Please make sure that your return address is clearly written in case it arrives late and we need to return the letter/package. So that your child can send mail to you, provide them with paper, pen, and a couple of stamped, pre-addressed envelopes.
Please note: There is no regular mail service from the Redlands, San Bernardino or Highland YMCA’s. Please do not leave packages at any of the branches.
