The Our Kids review of YMCA John Island Camp

our take

You really can’t go wrong with a YMCA camp, and there are a few very good reasons for that. The Y has been fully invested in camp programs since Taylor Statten first developed them for the Y in 1902. In the years since, the programs have grown and diversified, literally providing the models that the vast majority of camps looked to when they created their programs. John Island, in particular, offers a charming, traditional camp experience: the poetic vision of nights around the campfire, days on the water, friends everywhere and not a device in sight. It’s a model that has worked to develop initiative and confidence in young people for more than 100 years, and John Island is a great demonstration of why that is. Leadership programs may even apply toward high school credit, which is a nice plus. That said, the inter-generational engagement, the opportunities to grow through graduated, appropriate challenges, is why families turn first to John Island. As well they should.

Parent/Camper Quotes

“My son came back so proud of himself and all of the things he had done. The stories are still being shared and he is planning on wearing his John Island Camp shirt to school on the first day to tell all his friends about it…From our shy, anxious child this is truly amazing!”- John Island Parent In a word, "Awesome"- John Island Camper This was our first time sending our son to residential summer camp. He was leary at first but the idea of the sail and windsurf camp had him hooked. He LOVED it especially the windsurfing and can't wait to go back. He just wishes the camp session could be longer!- John Island Parent Our daugther talks about JIC from the time she gets home from camp until the time she leaves to go again the next summer. She keeps a daily count down on her computer - tracking the number of days to the next session each year- John Island Parent I had a really great time this year. Met lots of new friends and hope that my mom can send me again next year. I really learned alot and hope someday to become a counsellor- John Island Camp I had a great time at John Island Camp this summer I really like the new cabins, and the food! I will for sure come back next year!!!- John Island Camp I am just so pleased with the commitment to a quality camping experience. My son Max had the best time and is looking forward to next year. Thank you for your caring and your enthusiasm- John Island Parent
