The Y Camp Experience

 

Children explore nature, find new talents, gain independence, and make lasting friendships and memories.

YMCA Camp Independence gives kids a world of good. Camp gives children a safe environment to overcome challenges like mastering the high ropes course or hitting their first bullseye at Archery. With the great outdoors as a background, staff design activities to teach life lessons like persistence, creativity, solving problems, and working together to achieve a common goal.

The cabin experience shows children how to live cooperatively by sharing chores and respecting each other’s differences. Around the campfire, campers are encouraged to tell stories and share their opinions, and be open-minded and supportive as they listen to others.

“I just think it is a positive experience that all kids should have at least once in their lifetimes!” - Camper Parent
