Specialty Camps

Our Specialty Camps are Maywood are developed specificially to help campers age 7-14 engage in activities that match their interest. These are a perfect way to fuel your child's passion or even help them hone in on a new hobby. Each week we provide a variety of uniquely themed camps that combine specific skills, activities, field trips and experiences. Youth develop a greater passion for things they love or they can try out something new. 

In the mornings campers will focus and partake in the specialty themed portion and in the afternoons we'll switch gears to traditional Maywood camp activities of adventure and fun. On Fridays we'll head for an all camp field trip YMCA Camp Y-Koda for the swimming pool, the lake, gaga ball and more!

Campers are placed into groups with similarly aged children. Specialty Camps are a great way for your child to meet others with the same interests and to explore the horizons afar!

THURSDAY SLEEPOVERS

On Thursdays, campers leave Maywood at 4:00pm as always, and have the opportunity to come back to camp at 7:30pm for a camp sleepover. We'll bring out the tents and set up our very own campsite. If inclement weather is forecasted, the sleepover will be moved indoors. On Friday morning we will wake up early for breakfast, followed by the regularly scheduled Friday field trip to Camp Y-Koda. 

SWIMMING AT QUARRY PARK IN SHEBOYGAN

Every Tuesday and Thursday, campers will walk from Maywood to Quarry Beach Adventure Park in Sheboygan, WI to swim and play on the inflatable slides and obstacles. Your camper sure won't want to miss this! 

Life vests are provided by Quarry Park and must be worn by all swimmers. All participants must have a signed waiver form to swim at the Sheboygan Quarry. Waiver forms will be available for parents to sign at camp and can also be found on our Resource page.
