Boulder Y construction: Updates and modified hours here.



COVID Refund and Credit Policy for Y Programs (Effective 11/4/2020)

The COVID Refund and Credit Policy for Y Programs supersedes the YMCA of Northern Colorado’s existing refund/credit policy. This policy applies to registration in the following programs: Health/Fitness, Sports, Aquatics, Ice, Preschool, Youth and Teen Programs and Adult Programs. This policy does not apply to Y membership or YMCA Camp Santa Maria.


Our Staff

School Age and day camps are led by a YMCA director-qualified staff with related program experience. We meet the State of Colorado’s 1 to 15 staff/child ratio requirement — another way we work to assure a positive place for your child.

Preschool programs are led by CDHS Director qualified staff and each classroom is supervised by an ECT qualified teaching staff. We follow the ratios and maximum group size as outlined in the CDHS Child Care Rules and Regulations.

Parent Handbook

Please review all policies in the Parent Handbook prior to attending any YMCA preschool, K-5th program or summer day camp.

Supplemental Health Information (for Preschool)

You must complete a state licensed asthma and/or allergy health care plan form and the YMCA’s medical authorization form for any condition requiring medication or emergency treatment. These completed forms should be uploaded to your ePact account.

Colorado Asthma Form

Colorado Allergy and Anaphylaxis Form

Late Fee Policy

If you register within two business days of your child’s first day in our program, you will be charged a $70 late fee in addition to the $95 registration fee. The Y is licensed by the State of Colorado, and we must adhere to staffing ratios. Because of this, immediate care may not be available for your child if you register within two business days of the first day of care and you will be charged the late fee.

Support & Assistance

The Y welcomes children of all abilities. Families with children with disabilities are asked to complete the Support & Assistance Questionnaire when submitting registration. The SAQ is designed to help us gain a better understanding of your child’s needs and strengths and to help us identify the specific supports and assistance that may be needed for your child to safely and successfully participate in activities and programs. The Y offers additional supports and assistance in small group settings. In a small group context, children must be able to safely and cooperatively participate in program activities such as community field trips, swimming, and outdoor sports and games. Children must also be able to reliably follow directions and cooperate with guidelines regarding their safety and well-being and the safety and well-being of others. Email us for the Support & Assistance Questionnaire.


The Y does not ask about immigration or citizenship status; we provide care for all children, and we have a long history of supporting immigrant families in our communities and beyond.
