Scholarships and Assistance

Financial Assistance:

Families may apply for financial assistance for programs such as day camp, youth sports and enrichment. We make Financial Assistance available to those in need, and is based on a number of factors including total household income and number of dependents in the household. The process is confidential.

The Y doesn't turn anyone away if they have difficulty paying.  We find a way to make it work, where everyone shares in responsibility.

The YMCA of Northern Michigan strives to provide memberships and programs for all, regardless of family income. Scholarships are available for memberships and/or programs. Contact us at (231)348-8393 for more information.

To register, you may download the application form or pick one up at the Y office in downtown Petoskey.

Please return completed applications to our office:

Or submit your application electronically to Kari Manthei at kmanthei@ymcanm.org.


One family's story

" I would like to take the opportunity to express my gratitude for the YMCA. Thanks to the YMCA Scholarship Program, my daughter, Kialeigh, has been able to be a member and has participated in summer camp for the past 3 years. 

Kialeigh has really enjoyed her summers at camp as well as her afternoons at post camp. She has greatly benefited from being a member of the YMCA. She has learned to be part of a group, and part of a team. Things have been difficult for her as an only child. She has had a lot of experiences that I wouldn't have been able to give her without the YMCA. She has enjoyed spending her summer days outside, swimming, discovering, exploring, rock wall climbing, zip lining, horseback riding, playing games and so much more!

Thanks to the YMCA, Kialeigh has learned that there is a lot our there to be discovered and she is eager to learn. She has made some great friends through the YMCA and a lifetime of memories!

We are looking forward to camp with the YMCA this summer! Kialeigh is even looking forward to becoming a Counselor in Training when she reaches the appropriate age! I love seeing my daughter so happy and experiencing so much! "
