This introductory program allows your new camper to experience the excitement of overnight camp from Sunday through Wednesday (three nights). Campers will choose their morning activities, play all-camp games, spend time with their cabin group, visit the Camp Store, and enjoy open recreation times under the supervision of the camp staff. This program is a wonderful bridge from day camp to overnight camp.
The goal of YMCA Camp U-Nah-Li-Ya is to empower youth with the values of the YMCA through counselor relationships in the midst of exciting outdoor experiences. The values we teach cross all faiths and backgrounds; we empower kids to be caring, accept responsibility, show respect to others, and be honest.
Our camp culture starts with well trained, loving, enthusiastic and dedicated staff. We are an ACA accredited camp. This endorsement assures our camp's procedures and protocols are regularly reviewed. This review includes our staff's vetting process and training process.
The nice part is, we work above the standards. Each summer our counselors and managers go through over a week of training. These sessions include outdoor skills, activity planning, managing group dynamics, safety, training, and child development. They are ready and waiting for your camper to arrive.
