Overnight Camp

We know that many of you are looking forward to having your children attend our overnight camp. We recently received the guidelines for overnight camps from the Center for Disease Control, Y-USA, and the American Camp Association and will be deciding within the next few weeks on what that means for our camp program at Camp Kekoka. Please be sure to check back here and on our social channels for the most up to date information on camp as they occur.

$555 per camper / per week
Boys and Girls 9-15

While at Camp Kekoka campers enjoy living in climate-controlled cabins with nine other campers grouped by age. Each cabin has two highly-trained adult counselors. During the daylight hours, campers enjoy a well-rounded camp experience which includes traditional activities like swimming, arts and crafts, and archery as well as some unique activities like crabbing, fishing, tubing, kayaking, windsurfing, and sailing.

Children today face a barrage of information that can be difficult to understand and deal with. YMCA Camp Kekoka helps to prepare young people for their future by engaging them in developing life skills. They learn to become leaders for the causes they believe in, to live sustainably, to care for our shared environment, and to live cooperatively in a culturally diverse community.
