Adventure Day Camp is designed for campers who love exploring the outdoors while being able to go home to spend each evening with their families. Adventure Day Camp is similar to resident camping in that campers are placed in small groups and assigned two of our trained counselors as their week long buddies and role models. Each session is filled with three days of exciting camp activities such as swimming, boating, arts & crafts, horseback riding and taking a ride down the zip line. The other two days are spent on adventures throughout our great county at Charlton Park and the Outdoor Education Center.

Tiny Tots Day Camp is designed for our youngest campers to learn new skills, explore the natural world around them and make new friends. Tiny Tots camp is a week long camp with AM or PM session available. Campers will sing songs, play games, create arts & crafts, hike, splash in the lake and much more. Campers are assigned to a cabin group and caring counselors will give individualized attention and continual positive support to each camper during the week. This is a great introduction for campers to learn the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

YMCA Camp Algonquin is an amazing place for campers. Seven modern cabins serve as a base for each group and our all seasons lodge, with a health office, provides dining comforts as well as shower accommodations. How many times does a child have the opportunity to explore an island? Camp Algonquin features a five acre island where campers can explore, play and learn. In addition, all resident campers spend a night sleeping in tents. Camp Algonquin features 40 acres of trails, allowing campers to learn about their environment and see wildlife. Parents are encouraged to visit Camp Algonquin at any time prior to the child’s camp session for a tour.
