  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Camp Mini-Yo-We

    our take

    Many families turn to Mini-Yo-We because of the values it expresses, and rightly so. It’s adept at providing those values. That said, the staff is adept at many other things, with vibrancy prime among them—the goal is to light a fire within the campers, getting them engaged quickly and then building from there, something they make look far easier than it is. There is also a great attention to detail, with the programs and facilities sparkling throughout. All is exceptionally well managed, maintained, and promoted, through the summer and all year long. The breadth of programming allows for campers to develop seamlessly from their first overnight experience, to moving into leadership and mentoring roles. Spaces regularly sell out, which is as good a recommendation of the program as you can get. And Rich. He’s the executive director, and is a good recommendation, too. If you haven’t already, friend him on Facebook. You’ll be glad you did.

    “This was our daughter's first overnight camp experience and we were hopeful it would be the start of a wonderful tradition for summers to come...Camp Mini-Yo-We EXCEEDED all of our expectations. From the easy registration, to pre-arrival communication, to the facility, the awesome staff and the array of activities and delicious food, to the post-camp follow up.

    Stories

    • A New Experience

      “Our daughter loved EVERYTHING about Camp MYW.  She camp home more confident in her biking skills, and insisting that we do songs and skits during campfires at the cottage. She adored the lore and adventure she experienced during her trip to "Dead Man's Island."  Her minimal knowledge of Christianity has grown exponentially.” - First Time Parent

    • Two Weeks Was Great!

      “Our son had the opportunity to stay for two weeks and was involved in the weekend stay-over program.  I think this may have been his favorite part about camp this year. He enjoyed the smaller group over the weekend that allowed a more personal bond to be formed. He also can't stop talking about the fact that he got to go tubing!!” - Returning Camper Family

    • A Pastor's Perspective

      "Camp Mini-Yo-We offers everything I could possibly want in a summer camp; visionary leadership, dedicated staff members, unsurpassed location, and facilities (which are constantly being expanded and improved) that offer exciting opportunities for campers of all ages. I am grateful that my children have had the privilege of attending Camp Mini-Yo-We and experiencing such an enriching atmosphere." - Steve Baldry (Chedoke Presbyterian Church)
