Particular benefits of YMCA Camps
YMCA Camps have built a reputation for caring for the individual. That reputation remains well deserved today as camps inculcate leadership skills in kids, encourage cooperation and foster growth in spirituality. Like other outdoor camps, YMCA camps foster a love for and appreciation of nature.
In addition, YMCA camps encourage children to develop themselves physically, socialise with other children, grow in understanding other cultures and nationalities and adjust to large group settings. As with so many other camps, your child's experience at a YMCA camp will be remembered for a lifetime as a rich learning experience.
