Camp For All
About Our Tiered Pricing


We understand that camp families have differing abilities to pay, so we offer a two-tiered voluntary pricing system for many of our camps, relying on the honor system. We invite you to opt for Tier 1 pricing if it aligns with your family's financial capabilities. Tier 1 pricing reflects the true cost of participating in camp, encompassing operational expenses. Alternatively, Tier 2 pricing covers fundamental camp costs like food, staff, and supplies. Please designate your preferred pricing tier during the online registration process. Your choice remains confidential and does not impact the excellence of your child's camp experience.

Financial Assistance
Financial assistance is available for those who qualify, and you can find the application at gwrymca.org/financial-assistance. If you're in the greater St. Louis area, inquire at your local Gateway Region YMCA branch or contact us at camplakewood@gwrymca.org. Applying early allows for efficient processing. Those interested in contributing to our campership assistance fund can contact YMCA Camp Lakewood directly.

Discounts

  • YMCA members enjoy a $100 discount on the registration fee for YMCA Camp Lakewood sessions 1-3 and a $45 discount for sessions 4-9.
  • Military families are eligible for a 20% discount on program fees at YMCA Camp Lakewood. Request the military discount during your online registration and, upon check-in, provide your military ID to confirm active duty status.

  • Families with multiple children attending camp can benefit from a multi-child discount, receiving a $35 reduction applied toward the balance for the second, third, and subsequent children. To secure this discount, parents must request it at the time of registration, and the children must be from the same household.
