Here at Big Cove YMCA Camp, we believe that all children should have the opportunity to attend summer camp, and we are happy that you’re considering Big Cove! We understand that many families may be unable to pay for their children to have this invaluable experience. That is why Big Cove has a Financial Assistance program funded through the generosity of our members, staff, families, and friends who generously donate to the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign.

To ensure that we can provide funding to as many families as possible, YMCA Strong Kids typically subsidizes between 15 and 50 per cent of all Camp fees. All requests for Financial Assistance are based on a first come, first serve basis and all information is kept confidential. Forms may be sent by mail, fax (902-422-2469) or scanned via email to:


Please note that our programs fill up quickly and we advise that you pick a second choice when indicating your program choice on your forms, and that application will not be processed without financial verification. Once forms are received, you will be contacted as to approval. In order to ensure your child has reserved a spot at camp, a copy of your payment plan will be required upon approval of your application.

We thank you again for your interest in Big Cove, and can’t wait to hear from you! Should you have any questions, please call 425-9622 ext 2.
