We offer three different price options because we want each family to choose the rate that is most appropriate for them. No special paperwork is required. The price you pay does not change the experience your camper receives.
Tier A-This price most accurately reflects the full cost of camp, taking into account basic upkeep, depreciation, and facility/program improvements.
Tier B-This price is a rate for families who need to adjust down slightly from the true cost.
Tier C-This subsidized rate is only available to YMCA members.
Family Camp Pricing
Non Member: $100 base fee + $75/person (free for 3 and under)
Member: $50 base fee + $75/person (free for 3 and under)
Sharing Discount: If two families share a cabin we waive $50 of the base fee
We believe everyone should have an opportunity to experience Camp Manitou. We will work with families to make this happen. Need is based on a sliding fee scale, shown below. Percentage is financial assistance given.
How do I apply?
During the online registration process you will be asked to select a tier price. Select the financial assistance option.
If you are an Eau Claire YMCA member on financial assistance we will adjust the cost of camp based on your current financial assistant rate. We will need the USDA Summer Food Service Program form completed before we make the adjustment.
If you are not an Eau Claire YMCA member you will need to fill out the YMCA financial assistance paperwork as well as the USDA Summer Food Service Program form. To apply for financial assistance please fill out the Financial Assistance Form and provide verification of household income in person at the YMCA Service Desk during business hours. If you do not live in the area please contact our Membership Director at to discuss alternatives.
Acceptable forms of income include 1040 Tax Form, SSI or SSDI Award Letter, or County Assistance Verification Letter. If you do not have the verification of income or have experienced a change in income within the last year, you must meet with our Membership Director to apply for financial assistance. To schedule a meeting please call 715-836-8460 and ask for a financial assistance meeting.
