Camp Kekoka Application Process

Camp Kekoka Application and Waiver

I hereby request that my child be accepted to attend YMCA / APYC Camp Kekōka. I understand and am aware that my child will be participating in many physical activities and that the potential for accidents does exist. In consideration of acceptance to Camp Kekōka:

  • I indemnify and hold harmless Camp Kekōka, The Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA and/or its staff from any and all liability, claims, damage, injury or illness sustained by my child.
  • I grant permission for Camp Kekōka to provide or obtain medical attention for my child in the event of sickness or injury, and I understand accident insurance is not included in the camp fee. Should a camper require special medical treatment, prescriptions, or hospital care during the camp session, parent(s)/guardian(s) shall bear the expenses.
  • I agree that Camp Kekōka may photograph and/or video tape my child for use in promotional materials.
  • I understand that as a registered Camp participant, my child may be leaving Camp Kekōka property in YMCA vehicles to area destinations for specialized programs.
  • I understand that my child may be participating in the following activities: archery; skateboarding; rollerblading; basketball; flag football; arts & crafts; motor boating; swimming; sailing; kayaking; field sports; soccer; softball; volleyball; paddle boats; and environmental challenge.

I understand that a current Health Form and Medication Form must be submitted to the camp office in order for my camper to participate. These two mandatory forms can be found on Camp Kekoka’s web page under the “Resident Camp” tab.

Applicants who cannot be accepted due to a full session are notified and advised to select another session or join a waiting list. Cancellations do occur, and waiting-list campers advance in the order applications are received. To help you prepare more effectively for your child’s camp experience, you can download a parent guide.

Admission as a Camp Kekōka camper carries many privileges and responsibilities. We expect campers to participate in the total life of camp–to work, play, worship, and live together. We do not allow the use of tobacco, alcohol, illegal drugs, or weapons (other than equipment provided for camp activities under staff supervision).

Application signifies understanding and acceptance of these responsibilities–violators will be dismissed without a refund. In addition, should a behavior or discipline problem affect our work with other campers or their enjoyment of Camp Kekōka, we reserve the right to dismiss those campers responsible, without refund and the parent understands they will be required to pick up their child from camp.

Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
