Scholarships

Financial Assistance for Camp

We believe every child should experience camp, regardless of family income. Thanks to the generous support of donors in our annual Y Partners campaign, we are able to offer scholarships to campers who need a little extra help. 

Applying is easy and confidential

Step 1

If you have used Y programs/membership previously, go to step 2. Otherwise, create a new Y account for you/your family. Add all family members interested in Y programs.

Note: Only create a new account if you have not used the Y before. Please don’t create a 2nd account. Call us at 612-230-9622 if you are unsure if you have a Y account.

Step 2

Gather your income documents to upload with your scholarship application. If you file taxes, your 1040 form for the previous year is best. View income & financial support verification documentation.

Step 3

Complete the online application form

Applications are processed in the order received. We’ll review your information and within ten (10) business days you should receive an email from us with a decision. We will let you know if we need additional information.

How it works

We’ll consider your annual income, the number of adults and dependents in your household, and then determine a scholarship to align with your individual situation. Our goal is to help all families who qualify for assistance. If your family gets assistance through the county or other agency, please let us know. Scholarships are possible thanks to individual and business contributions.
