YMCA Camp Leif Ericson

Why Campers Return Each Summer

Kids simply love our traditional two-week camp programs.  Summer after summer, our campers return to reunite with their best friends and camp counselors. There are favorite horses to ride, campfires to enjoy and old camp stories to be re-told.  Many of our camper parents are often seen reconnecting with old friends and sharing warm memories during parent’s night each summer.

Our counselors also give special attention to our new campers, who quickly make friends and are welcomed into the camp family.  Your child remains with the same counselor and small group of children each week as they travel to activities together.  The first day at camp includes several “get to know you” activities and games to make your child comfortable.
