About Us — YMCA Family Camp Nawakwa

Curious about camp hours, facilities, rentals, and the phenomenal team of leaders at YMCA Family Camp Nawakwa? You’re in the right place! 

YMCA Family Camp Nawakwa believes that family is the most important foundation upon which we build our lives. Therefore, we’re committed to providing a safe and friendly environment to create lifelong memories and offering opportunities that foster families' growth and strength. Our Family Camp programs have the following objectives:

Strengthen family relationships

Encourage positive values in an outdoor setting

Build awareness of the environment and an appreciation of wilderness

Provide an atmosphere of fun and relaxation

With the great outdoors as a background, families spend quality time with each other and friends alike with the option of participating in optional staff-designed activities for all ages. Every year, families look forward to reuniting with friends and that’s what keeps our retention rates so high!
