Summer Camp

Welcome to summer at the Keene Family YMCA! Whether you’re considering a traditional day camp or a specialty camp, summer at the Y is always filled with excitement, adventure, new friends, lifelong memories, and most of all fun! Our camp programs are based on the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility, delivered in a safe and supportive environment where safety is our top priority. We provide affordable, quality summer experiences for youth ages 4-12. There are few experiences as unique and special as camp. At camp, children become part of a community and form friendships as they learn how to be more independent and contribute to a group. Amidst all the fun of sports, crafts, outdoor adventures, and more, children develop skills that build character and promote leadership. At the Y, we believe every child should be given the opportunity to experience the joy of summer camp. Don’t miss out!

Camp Wakonda 2021

Camp Wakonda is a traditional day camp based outdoors that offers different, exciting themes each week. Campers will be engaged each day through active group games, STEM projects, creative arts, team building, water play and more! Camp programming is intentional in its effort to build self-esteem and positive relationships among campers. Our camp counselors are professional role models and bring each camp day to life with their supportive nature and enthusiasm.

At Camp Wakonda your camper will find their home away from home where they feel safe and a sense of belonging. Individual, daily team huddles bring the group together to build trust, respect for one another and a sense of social responsibility. Back by popular demand – the BEAD PROGRAM! This program fosters our cause of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility by awarding campers unique tokens of achievement for their camp experiences. Campers will also be introduced to goal setting and the power behind their own abilities by tracking Mastery Skill progress throughout the week. Whether campers attend Camp Wakonda for one week, or all eight, each week will be a unique experience that creates memories and friendships to last a lifetime!
