Staff Information

Parents, you can rest assured that your camper(s) are in safe and capable hands. All camp staff are CPR and First Aid trained and are screened against criminal and child protective service records. Since we are surrounded by water and have a pool, we guarantee that all water activities are lifeguarded by certified staff. With a counselor to camper ratio of 1:5, we always have our eyes on your child. Our staff can’t wait to spend quality time exploring nature, teaching archery, water sports, and leading family time with your child! We spare no cost to make sure our staff exceeds your every expectation.

kekoka-parent-info-2Meet The Director

I’ve had the honor and privilege to work for the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA for the past 16 years. My personal mission and values lock up perfectly with the Y’s mission and values; I believe that every young person is a unique individual who deserves to experience what YMCA Camp Kekoka offers. You have seen and heard all about the sun, fun and water-sports, but that isn’t even the best part about what we offer! We give young people the tools to build character, form friendships, and develop leadership skills in a caring and nurturing atmosphere.
As a parent myself, I understand that sending your child away to an overnight camp can be scary. I can personally promise you that I place physical and emotional safety at camp as the top priority. – Cassie Leichty

Take It From a Camper and Her Mom

Take It From A Parent

Our daughter Elizabeth has always had an adventurous spirit so after attending an informational meeting about YMCA Camp Kekoka, we decided this was the camp for her and allowed her to go. We are so glad we sent hekekoka-parent-info-4r; she had the most sensational camp experience!

Elizabeth could not wait to go back and returned to Camp Kekoka again last summer. She loves the tubing, kayaking, fishing, crafts, sailing, gardening, and hanging out with friends. She has developed great friendships and keeps in contact with her new friends from camp.

The camp staff have helped instill positive values, increased her self-confidence, and strengthened her sense of responsibility and independence! – Robyn and Thomas

Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
