Summer Camps

Our summer programs offer something for everyone - day camp, specialty sports camps, and summer child care. Our goal is to help kids make new discoveries and explore activities of interest in an atmosphere that reinforces the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Whether they are interested in sports, the outdoors, or the arts, they’ll build self-confidence, develop interpersonal skills and, most importantly, make new friends and lasting memories.

Kon-O-Kwee is more than fun… It’s Friends! There’s magic in the memories as you summit Eagle’s Nest, watch your first shooting star, catch the big one, get muddy, splash your counselor, and make friends and memories that last a lifetime. At Kon-O-Kwee, fun is not our mission. Fun is what campers experience when we accomplish our mission. Every activity, every deci-sion, every effort is purposefully designed for Kon-O-Kwee campers to experience the four core values of the YMCA of Honesty, Caring, Respect, and Responsibility.
