CAMP GOALS

  • To provide a memorable, educational, enjoyable, and enriching experience for youth.
  • To help children grow mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually.
  • To help children develop good character.
  • To help children gain an appreciation of nature.
  • To help our staff develop and refine leadership skills.

CLARIFICATION OF GOALS

The above goals align with the goal of the YMCA: to help people reach their full potential in spirit, mind, and body. We teach children to develop and maintain physical fitness, to grow in faith, and to interact with others in a healthy manner. In addition, everyone in our camp exemplifies good character through positive interactions. We define good character as exhibiting a caring, honest, respectful, and responsible attitude.

Through our daily programs, the YMCA creates a positive experience for each child. At our playground programs, children learn to develop a strong rapport with their counselors and their peers. Our programs create enriching experiences that a child will remember for a lifetime.
