Policies and Communication

Camp Cory has several policies regarding enrollment as well as those regarding your campers’ safety while at camp. Each is detailed below, but if you have any questions, call our office at 585-325-2889.

The Parent Dashboard

The Parent Dashboard is the hub of all communications from the Camp Office, including form submission status, upcoming Camp events, enrolling for camp, and updating camper and family information. If you have begun an account, you may log back in at any time or request a new password by calling the camp office (585-325-2889). If you are new to camp and have not created a family profile, you may do so here.

Payment Plans

Camp Cory offers four payment plans for families to select based on preference and financial status.

Tuition Paid in Full – Pay in full at the time of enrollment.

Deposit Only Now – Deposit of 15% is paid upon enrollment and the remaining balance is applied to the credit card on file on June 1st. Additional payments may be submitted prior to June 1 through the Parent Dashboard on the Finance tab.

Monthly Invoice (1st or 15th) Deposit of 15% is paid upon enrollment. Payments are made monthly on the 1st or 15th, split evenly until June.

Financial Assistance- A deposit of at least $50 paid upon enrollment and forms and supporting documents are submitted via the Parent Dashboard. Financial Assistance determinations take 2-3 weeks and final payments are scheduled once the determination has been accepted.

Member Fees

Camp Cory is a branch of the YMCA of Greater Rochester. If your child is not a YMCA branch member, there is an annual fee of $80 per camper (waived for Day Campers). This fee does not entitle a camper to YMCA membership privileges.

Session Changes

Families may change a session, free of charge before April 30. After this date, there will be a $20 processing fee. To do so, send an email identifying your camper, their current session/program, and the change that needs to be made. Per availability, camp will make updates and forward new confirmation letters.

Add a Session

Sessions may be added through the Parent Dashboard after your enrollment has been processed by entering a passcode on the Enrollment Options page. Passcodes are ‘Add Traditional’ or ‘Add Sailing’.

Families may also add a session by emailing their request (including session and camper name) to

Cancellation Policy

All cancellations are to be made in writing or by email. Prior to June 1, the deposit (15% of full tuition amount) is non-refundable. There are no refunds for cancellations after June 1. If a camper leaves camp before the end of the session by choice, homesickness, or disciplinary actions there will be no refund.

Communication at Camp

We encourage parents to write to their campers! We encourage campers to do the same, but don’t require them to do so. Not receiving written communication from them probably means they’re having a great time!

Postal Mail:

Camper name – Cabin #

Camp Cory

140 East Lake Road Route 54

Penn Yan, NY 14527

Email: is a service that, for a fee, provides one-way OR two-way emails to your camper. You will need a username, password, and security code available through the camp office.

Telephone: Camp has limited phone lines. We ask that you call for business or emergencies only. Please contact Pat Foster with questions related to your camper’s experience. Please note that your child will not be able to call home. We have found that this exacerbates homesickness and disrupts the camp experience. We will call you if there is anything, however minor, we feel that you should know.

Visitor Policy

Camp Cory welcomes camper and staff visitors on opening and closing days of each session. Visiting camp while we are in session requires special arrangements and all visitors must stop at the office upon arrival to check in and receive a visitor badge.

Cell Phone Policy

Cell phones are not permitted at camp as they are disruptive to camp life and detract from the entire cabin’s camp experience. If a camper brings a cell phone with them to camp, they will be labeled and placed in the camp safe until the end of the session. Parents are required to be at the office with their camper when they pick up their cell phone.
