***Prior to registering for camp, CCCAP families should contact their CCCAP caseworker by the 3rd week of April to get authorized for Camp 2021. CCCAP does not authorize care until 45-60 days from the start of the program. As of May 1, we are on waitlist for CCCAP spaces available in select camps - CCCAP spots are limited. You will not be able to register for camp until we receive CCCAP Authorization for the correct location. Without authorization you will be responsible for the full cost of camp. ***
What is CCCAP?
The Colorado Child Care Assistance Program is a government funded program that provides financial assistance with child care costs to eligible, low-income families.
How do I get CCCAP?
Families apply through the human services department in the County where they reside.
How does CCCAP operate at the Y?
It is important to note that we offer a limited number of CCCAP spots in our Summer Camp programs.
Our CCCAP Interest List for the summer opens at the beginning of April, to get more info please complete this form.
Both lists operate on a first-come, first-served basis, where families may request to be added to the list for one of our CCCAP-eligible sites and start the registration process.
Do CCCAP families register their children online?
CCCAP families do not register online! Please contact us to inquire about our CCCAP availability. If and when you are offered an official spot, we will initiate the registration process with you that is unique to CCCAP families.
What is the difference between CCCAP and the Y’s Financial Assistance Scholarship?
CCCAP is a social service that offers financial assistance to families in the form of government subsidies paid directly to a child’s child care provider. The Y offers financial assistance to families using funds we have raised through the generosity of our donors. CCCAP and the Y’s scholarship may not be used simultaneously.
To use CCCAP benefits for the YMCA Day Camp program, please call 720-524-2700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about available slots. Not all program locations are CCCAP eligible and we have limited slots that are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please do not register online as you will be charged full-price and end up accountable for the balance!
