Traditional Day Camp Program Ages 7-14
When your child tells you about their adventures at Camp Wabansi, you'll hear all about boating, swimming, singing camp songs, shooting bows and arrows, building campfires, creating art, close encounters with wildlife, playing sports, taking nature hikes, team-building, and endless fun. In fact, they are returning home with new skills, interests, character values, and amazing memories.
When you snap a photo of your child being recognized by their own counselor at the Closing Campfire, for the way they cared for a fellow camper, played with good sportsmanship, or acted as a role model for others, you will truly know the essence of the Camp Wabansi experience!
YMCA Camp Wabansi is a great way for kids to stay active throughout the summer! After your first week you can sign up for additional sessions with a 20% discount. Fun and unique experiences each week coupled with outstanding supervision make coming mulitple weeks a great option for your camper.
Short Bus Ride To Camp. The bus ride goes really fast because the counselors are so fun! They have us singing songs, waking up cows, and laughing all the way to camp.
Morning Flag Ceremonies. We say the pledge, and our counselors show us a silly skit to remind us of ways we can be honest, respectful, responsible, and caring at camp.
Counselor Time. Sometimes our counselor tells us stories, sometimes we play games, and sometimes we talk about stuff like friends and hobbies.
Activity Times. Our counselors are always showing us how we can help each other have fun, like helping to aim for the bullseye in archery.
Boating. This is one of our favorite things to do. If the water isn't too choppy, we get to boat every week! Our lifeguard teaches us how to move forward, backwards, and turn around. The water is really shallow, and even if we're not strong swimmers, we are always safe by wearing lifejackets.
Program Times. We learn about nature, make crafts, build campfires, create skits, experience team building, play sports, and lots more.
Lunch. We always have lunch with our counselor and the rest of our tribe. The counselors will sing songs during lunch, too, and we get to sing along. Don't forget to throw away your trash and always recycle!
Swimming. We get swim time every afternoon. Some people like to swim, others like to hang out on the beach and play in the sand. Sometimes we work as a team to build really big sand castles.
Tie Dye Tuesday. Oh yeah! There are lots of traditions at Camp Wabansi. Every Tuesday, we get to tie-dye a t-shirt. The teen leaders show us how to make really cool designs.
Themed Thursdays. Every Thursday is Theme Day! We get to dress up like superheroes, pirates, or even animals. Then we play a bunch of awesome games that have to do with the theme of the week.
Coolest Part. Our counselors let us have fun, and they compliment us on things like when we're honest when we play sports and caring when we help each other.
Friends and family are invited to Camp Wabansi on Friday afternoon for our Friday Finale closing campfire. Join us for hilarious skits and songs, and camper recognition! Guests may begin arriving at camp and check in at the camp office anytime after 2:00 pm. (Please do not plan to arrive earlier than 2:00 pm.) The campfire will begin at 2:15 pm. Camp Wabansi has several benches in the amphitheater, but parents are also encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets for seating. An ice cream treat will be provided after the campfire for all campers and guests. If parents do attend the campfire, plan on taking your camper home at 3:45 pm on that Friday afternoon. If parents do not attend, then your camper will be sent home on the bus as usual and arrive for pick-up at their pre-arranged location at the usual pick-up time.
- There will be before and after care offered at the West Side YMCA for a small additional fee.
