Choose your own pricing

YMCA Camp Minikani is a community inclusive to all, founded on the belief that everyone is stronger when they have the opportunity to participate. In this spirit, we are happy to offer two voluntary prices, actual and adjusted. Families may choose the most suitable cost with no change to their camper’s experience.

  • Actual: The actual rate reflects the true cost of running YMCA Camp Minikani, including facility upkeep, support staffing and utilities.
  • Adjusted: The adjusted rate is the lowest price a family may choose. If your financial needs are greater, please consider applying for financial assistance below.

Deposits & Payment Plans

A minimum deposit is due at registration

  • Day Camp & MiniCamp: $50 per week/per child
  • Honey I Shrunk the Session & 1 Week Overnight Camps: $100 per week/per child
  • 2 Week Overnight Camps and Explorer Camps: $200 per child

Payment Plans can be setup at time of online registration or by calling the office. Deposits are refundable until January 15. You may choose to pay camp fees in full or set up a payment plan for the remaining balance. Full payment and paperwork are due by April 1.

If, by April 1, fees are not paid in full or have an automatic credit card payment plan set up, your camper(s) will be unenrolled, and all monies put towards registrations will be forfeited.


If a spot becomes available, your child is automatically enrolled, and you are notified via email. You have 48 business hours to confirm the spot and pay the deposit either by calling the office, or by logging in to your family portal here and making a payment. If the office does not hear from you in that 48 hour time frame, a phone call will be made, and another email sent and you will have one business day to pay your deposit either online or over the phone. If no deposit or communication with the office has been made, your child is canceled from the session and removed from the waitlist. After January 15, as spots open up on the waitlist, preference will be given to campers who are not registered for any sessions. We want everyone to have the opportunity to attend camp.


All monies are refundable until January 15. After January 15, all monies less the above deposits are refundable until April 1. After April 1, all monies are forfeited due to cancellation. If there is sickness or injury, a medical note from a physician is required for a full refund. All monies are non-refundable if your camper leaves early due to homesickness or disruptive behavior, as determined by the camp director.

Eliminating economic barriers

 We are fortunate to be stewards of our financial assistance program and take seriously our responsibility to make these funds available to anyone who may need assistance.  When everyone in our community has access to Camp Minikani, we become stronger as a whole.  Our lives are enriched by these relationships, and we grow as a community.  In this spirit, we ask that you don’t wait to apply for assistance.  Help us live our values by joining the Minikani family today!

  • Financial Aid: The YMCA’s Financial Assistance Program, supported in part through the contributions to the YMCA Camp Minikani Annual Campaign, provides aide for those in need, within our available resources, helping families who otherwise may not be able to attend camp. For more information contact camp at 262-251-9080.
