You can access this on the top of any page on our website. This button allows you to make payments, get required forms, upload forms, update information and review your selections. You can also send oneway e-mails and see camper photos in your CampInTouch account. You can login to your account day or night at your convenience.
All Camper forms are available through your CampInTouch account once your camper is registered. Required forms are noted and due 2 weeks PRIOR to check in to avoid a late fee of $35. Through CampInTouch, your camper's forms are downloaded for completion and then uploaded directly to your account. This assures that your originals remain in your safekeeping, and the information is safe and secure and tied directly to your camper. Please do NOT mail, email or fax original forms for processing. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us at 256-268-2007 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Required forms: Physical Exam, Health History, Camper Information and Departure for Pick Up (located in FAMILY FORMS) at the BOTTOM of the Forms section. Please also submit the Immunization Form (form provided or Health department issued) and a copy of your child's Insurance Card. The Transportation form lets us know how and who will bring your camper to camp so that we can make plans for those who need airport/bus terminal pick up.
If you have questions about forms or using CampInTouch, please contact us at email@example.com or 256-268-2007.
This is a handy tool for all campers and their families. You’ll find information about changes, check in, check out, the health center, communication policies and more.
ALL forms and ALL Balances MUST be submitted 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO CHECK IN! A $35 LATE fee will be assessed for any payments or forms submitted after this date unless approved by the Executive Director. Failure to adhere to this policy could result in the cancellation of your camper's registration and loss of deposit.
Cancellations, Session/Program Transfers and Refunds:
No refunds are given if a camper leaves early due to homesickness or is dismissed due to behavioral issues. Campers are expected to behave in a Caring, Respectful, Responsible and Inclusive manner at all times. Failure to abide by Camp Cosby's rules and guidelines can result in dismissal from camp.
YMCA Birmingham Camp Cosby reserves the right to cancel any program. Should such an event take place, all fees are refundable or transferable to the next available camp session.
The Dining Hall is a staple of the camp experience. At YMCA Camp Cosby we pride ourselves in having a fun, interactive and character building dining experience in a family atmosphere.
Seating – Campers sit at the same table as the other campers in their cabin and their counselors for each meal.
Family Style Meals – Meals are plated and set on the table for campers to pass, share and enjoy. This allows the campers to spend their time enjoying each other’s company instead of standing in line. Counselors eat each meal with their campers and enjoy meals as a time to talk and connect.
Salad Bar/Other Options – Each meal has many options. Along with the main dish, a salad bar is offered. At breakfast, salad bar consists of fruit, yogurt, and granola. Lunch and Dinner salad bar consists of vegetables and salad fixings. No one goes hungry at Camp Cosby. If a camper cannot find something they enjoy their counselor will work with the kitchen to make sure everyone has something satisfying to eat. Please note: Dietary Restrictions and special meal needs must be communicated in advance on your camper application.
Kitchen Patrol “KP” – Each meal one camper from each cabin is on Kitchen Patrol. This is known around camp as “KP" and is a part of our character development at camp. This camper will be responsible for setting the table, asking the other campers if they are interested in more when a dish is emptied, taking that dish to the kitchen to be refilled, filling the water pitcher and taking items up to the dishwashing station at the end of the meal. Campers love being the KP because they get to have extra responsibilities and they get to take care of their cabin.
Consolidation – This is the time in the meal when we clean up the table. Each camper helps stack plates, clean up their area and take items to the dishwashing station.
Songs and Dancing – The Dining Hall is an area of great excitement at camp as well as a place to eat. After everyone has had their fill the Dining Hall will burst out in songs, chants and some of our favorite dances. Don’t worry if your camper doesn’t know the songs and dances yet because returning campers and counselors love to teach these to our new campers.
The best way to stay connected is to have a current e-mail address on file at all times.
