TUITION ASSISTANCE: The YMCA accepts participants who qualify for subsidy. If you qualify for any kind of assistance, or need information, please contact Jessica Mattern to learn more about your child’s care.
The Harrisburg Area YMCA Annual Campaign raises funds to provide scholarships for participants in need of assistance with membership and childcare. This scholarship program can provide relief if your family does not qualify for other types of assistance. If interested, please request a financial aid form from Jessica Mattern.
