Weekly Family Program
On Thursdays, campers leave at 4:00pm and then return later with their family for the Thursday Family Program. During the week, groups prepare songs and skits to perform at the program. This event allows families to meet the counselors, tour the grounds and see the activities the camper has been doing all week. The program begins at 7:30pm for weeks 1 - 7 and at 7:00pm for weeks 8 - 11. Families are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes prior to drop items off and shop at the camp store. When the program is finished, we offer an optional authentic camp sleepover for campers enrolled in that week. When the program is finished, all campers not sleepover can go home with their families and return to camp on Friday (the next day). The Family Program will be held rain or shine.
If the Family Program & Sleep over is cancelled due to inclement weather, it will be announced on our website and Camp Facebook Page.
Only available at Camp Y-Koda location
Although the sleepover is optional, camp strongly recommends having your camper sleepover for the authentic camp experience and continue learning life skills. Campers will sleep in our cabins or lodges, and partake in night activities and have a campfire to roast s'mores.
After the family program is finished, parents are required to walk their child to their counselor at their designated campsite. If campers have medication to take during their time at camp, medication must be turned into the camp director and sign the required form. Medication must be in the original container. For more information on medication, please read the Parent Handbook.
