Our classic overnight camp experience, six-day overnight camp is full of traditions, activities, and adventure. Campers individually choose eight activities, based on their own interests, to participate in throughout the week during morning activity times. The rest of the day is spent hanging out with their cabin group, visiting the Camp Store, enjoying open recreation times, and participating in our theme of the week. Evening activities include all-camp games like Capture the Flag, skits, s'mores around the campfire, and maybe even a tent camping experience for our older campers.
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.
