Summer camp is one of the iconic experiences of childhood. The YMCA has been offering these experiences for more than 100 years. From sports to music, crafts to theater, horseback riding to swimming, YMCA camps provide fun and adventures for kids ages 5-17.

All YMCA camping programs strive to instill positive values such as caring, honesty, respect and responsibility – values that help young people make positive choices for a healthy, contributing adulthood. Whether your child is ready for a two-week stay at our resident camp, Camp Minikani, or they're more interested in the variety of activities at our many day camps, YMCA camps create great memories that last a lifetime.

YMCA Camp Minikani
Located on the shores of Amy Belle Lake, just minutes from downtown Milwaukee, YMCA Camp Minikani sets the highest standards in resident camping through programs that match the interests and abilities of each camper. Minikani focuses on personal goal setting and the unique needs of each camper, offering hands-on learning experiences that develop lessons and values that will last a lifetime. Minikani creates a place where friendships can grow and people can learn. YMCA Camp Minikani develops the amazing potential in every child!

YMCA Day Camp
The Y knows children. We know they need to spend time outdoors, practicing social and decision-making skills that are new to them. And we know they need to be inspired and mentored by the adults in their lives. YMCA Day Camp offers all of these things. Plus, our camps are safe and include value-based programming focused on caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We invite your family to become part of our camp family!
