THE ‘Y’ DIFFERENCE
As with all YMCA programmes, we use camp as a tool to develop the potential of youth especially in the area of character development and values learning. For kids to discover more of what makes them unique, as well as how strong values lead to a more enriched and fulfilling life, camp is vital part of the mission of the Y.
We achieve great results because the programme is designed to be fun with diverse options, which captures the attention of the kids. But at the centre of it all, we are successful because we select and train camp leaders who embrace our core vales and philosophy, with a heart and passion for developing youth.
Led by YMCA-trained camp leaders, campers are encouraged to focus behaviors in keeping with the five cores values of Honesty, Caring, Respect, Responsibility & Faith.
Our programme objectives and core values are at the heart of everything we do at camp. From field games to sports and swimming, there is tremendous opportunity to teach campers through our routine, personal interactions.
Our approach makes it REAL, and camp leaders make it FUN…the result is character development that is ‘REAL FUN’!
