Please have the following ready, as you will need these required items below to fully process your child(s)'s registration with us and reserve their spots (if openings are available). If these items are missing or not yet available we will NOT be able to process your child's registration. If registering online, you WILL need the following items prepared. 

  • Immunization Record/Immunization Information
    • Need your child's immunization record? Visit the link to Wisconsin Immunization Registry and complete the fields.
    • Fun Fact! Immunizations will remain on your child's profile and if you decide to enroll into another camp program, you will just need to review the information and make changes if needed. 
  • Emergency Contacts (Name, relationship, telephone number, and email address)
  • Physician/Medical Facility Information (Physician name, telephone number, address of medical facility)
  • Payment via Credit Card or E-Check
  • Child's Active Membership ID# (if applicable) to receive the YMCA Member camp rates. If your child does not have an active membership and wish to purchase one for your child, it will be an option in the online system to purchase per child. All membership ID's will be verified. 
    • Why do i need my membership ID #? Previously our registration system was the same as the Sheboygan YMCA's membership system, so the system could tell if a family had a YMCA membership. The prices that will be shown will have a member and a non-member rate. CampBrain doesn't compute with CCC (the old system), so we are requiring families to manually enter in their child's active YMCA Membership ID#. We will then verify memberships. A lower camper price is a benefit of a YMCA membership. To learn more about membership, please visit the Sheboygan County's YMCA Membership page or contact the Membership Director



Visit the link below and create an account for your household. All forms & immunization information are required to complete your child's registration online and to reserve their spot. Online registration is open 24/7. If a specific program date is FULL, the system will give you an open to be added to the waitlist.
