Financial Assistance

The YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth, including YMCA Camp Carter, is a nonprofit organization committed to helping people reach their full potential in spirit, mind, and body. The Y recognizes that many of the children and families throughout our community would benefit from Y programs and services but cannot afford to participate. We know that kids need camp – and the Y’s commitment to our community assures that financial assistance is available to those who qualify. Our financial assistance is based on a sliding fee scale that is designed to fit each family’s financial situation.

Thanks to the generous donors of our Annual Campaign, we are able to make the Y accessible through our Financial Assistance Program. To apply for financial assistance, please complete the form below and email it to [email protected].
