Camp Y-Ki

About Camp Y-Ki

Swimming, archery, arts and crafts, sports, nature, camp songs, outdoor adventure, and special events… the traditional summer camp experience of Camp Y-Ki provides kids with the fun, friends, and personal growth that only summer camp can provide.

Held at Kiwanis Park, Camp Y-Ki is an exciting outdoor camp experience for school-age children, offering a variety of activities which help campers build self-esteem, confidence, independence and responsibility – all while enjoying outdoor summertime fun with friends.

All camp forms are due June 1 through ePACT Network.

Specialty Camps

In addition to regular camp activities, campers in third grade and older choose a programmatic “specialty” each week. Specialties will run approximately 1 ½ hours each day and will provide additional time for campers to enjoy his/her specific area of interest.

For example: The camper who loves arts and crafts may choose candle making & leather craft, sewing, or woodworking; the sports fan may decide on gymnastics, archery, karate, or project adventure (group games); the nature lover may choose survival skills, tracking, green club (gardening and recycling), or rocket building; campers with a creative side might like to sign up for photography, video making, cartooning, or hip hop dance and yoga; and for the camper who can’t get enough of the water, they may choose additional waterfront time with activities like canoeing, or water games.

By maintaining the structure of a traditional day camp while incorporating the unique interests of individual campers, Camp Y-Ki provides a perfect balance of summer camp activities for all.
