Discovering skills (achievement)

Campers experience achievement when they try different activities, learn what they like, and discover what they are good at.

Building friendships (relationships)

Campers have the opportunity to form healthy relationships with other children, caring adults, and role models, which helps them feel good about themselves and learn to get along with others.

Finding a place to belong (belonging)

Campers connect through significant camp traditions and rituals that create a sense of belonging, so they feel included, accepted, and part of a community.



At YMCA Camp Oakes, campers develop an appreciation for the outdoors, while forming new friendships and developing healthy life-long skills. Hundreds of campers come each summer to learn, grow and try new things.
