 Program Pricing

Payments are scheduled the Friday before the week of attendance. Payments will no longer be scheduled the Friday before holiday breaks such as November 18th (the Friday before Thanksgiving). The reduction in the total number of payments from 41 to 37 resulted in a slight increase in the weekly payments as shown below. Pricing for Districts 44 & 45 has also been separated to more accurately reflect the program length.

Payments can be made by automatic credit card charge, direct debit,  mail, or in person at the Tri-Town YMCA office. Payments cannot be made at the school sites. Fee adjustments cannot be made for absences or personal vacations.

Early Dismissal – Districts 44 & 45

Tri-Town YMCA recently changed the policy on early dismissal days. To cover the cost for staff and supplies we will be charging an additional $5.00 per early dismissal day to our current Y’s Kids families both in District 44 & 45. We have listed the registration information online for your convenience. Please log on to the customer portal using the Register SnipIt  button. Once logged on, you may search for “School’s Out Camp & Early Dismissal Days” under the Activities drop down in the navigation bar. Please make sure you are choosing your child’s school from the available choices.  If you have any trouble with the online registration please email info@tritownymca.org or call 630-629-9622.

Bus Service will be available to families enrolled in bussed programs at either Hammerschmidt or North School.

Registration for families not enrolled in Y’s Kids is subject to availability. The cost for non-Y’s Kids families for only the early dismissal hours (1:15-3:15 for District 44 or 12:30-2:30 for District 45) is $10.00.
