Program Dues

Y Guides program dues are based on each child enrolled in the program from the first through third years. All dads in second and third year tribes will be invoiced in the Fall for the upcoming program year. Trailblazers do not have any program dues.

Program Dues for 2018-2019: $116 for YMCA of the Triangle members; $134 for non-members.

Please note: Y Guides events such as Spring Outing, Winter Inning and Fall Outing Third Years, have separate fees based on the event.

How to pay your Program Dues
