About Us


Welcome to Y-Koda - Tradition and Excellence since 1969

Mission: To promote responsible stewardship of our environment and enhances participant quality of life by offering hands-on education opportunities.

Vision: To strengthen our community by connecting youth and families with the outdoors by providing valuable outdoor experiences. 


Camp Y-Koda is located on a beautiful 80 acre parcel just west of Sheboygan Falls, WI. The property is bordered by the Sheboygan River to the north and east, has a three acre lake, wetlands, forests, and more than five acres of prairie.  Camp Y-Koda was founded in 1969 by the Sheboygan County YMCA and has been offering summer camp experiences ever since. 

In 2001, Camp Y-Koda merged with the Outdoor Skills Center and officially became known as Camp Y-Koda Outdoor Skills and Education.  The merger combined two organizations that shared the same passion of providing valuable outdoor experiences to youth, families, and community members at large.  Today, Camp Y-Koda is one of the premier summer day camps in the state of Wisconsin serving roughly 1900 campers each summer through more than 80 different camp choices.  

We double as a year round award winning environmental education center serving schools throughout Sheboygan County and beyond.  We have a passion for the outdoors, and we believe strongly in the importance of outdoor experiences for youth, families, and adults alike as an integral component of a healthy and wholesome lifestyle.  We are a proud piece of our community and we seek to make its members stronger by providing valuable outdoor experiences to them through camps, educational programs, events, and other forms of outreach.  If you are looking to get engaged with nature, we can help!
