4 Reasons to Choose YMCA Camps

#1 Your camper is immersed in our YMCA Character Development Program: This program is tried and true. YMCA camps purposefully teach four core values including caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. This program has been around so long, your child’s grandparents…maybe even great grandparents, could have experienced this aspect of YMCA camping.

#2 We are nationally recognized and community focused: The YMCA is not running one camp in one city. There are THOUSANDS of YMCA camps around the world developing our rich history by running beautiful camps every day! In Green Bay alone we run two urban day camps, one traditional day camp and one overnight camp. That is four camps!

#3 We train year round, not just for summer camp: The Green Bay Y utilizes resources from around the country. With support from Y of the USA and the American Camping Association, we build the best programming possible and continuously work to improve our already amazing opportunities!

#4 We have the skills to help develop campers from ages 4-17: Your camper can launch their camping experience as early as 4 years old. Many of our campers stay connected throughout their lives. Campers become Junior Counselors…who become Camp Counselors…who become well prepared adults, ready to embrace life’s adventures!
