$530 per camper / per week

Boys & Girls 9-15

While at Camp Kekoka campers enjoy living in new 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 which 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.
