There is no better way to get our kids back outside and away from screens than through a summer camp experience. According to the American Camping Association, just one week of summer camp can produce amazing impact, including increased self-confidence and communication skills, positive relationship building skills with peers and adults, decrease in summer learning loss and improved overall learning habits, not to mention a better understanding and appreciation of what the great outdoors has to offer.
Safety Comes First
YMCA Camp Manitou-Lin takes prides in its quality of staff and counselors. For our campers’ safety, every staff member has their background checked through multiple agencies that are required and recommended by our Michigan Youth Camp License and American Camp Association. Supervision is a key component to a great camp experience, so we ensure that no child is ever left unattended and no staff member is ever alone with just one child. Every member of our team goes through an intense two-week staff training that includes basic first aid and CPR as well as conflict resolution, emergency procedures, homesickness, positive praise, bullying prevention and core values recognition. If you have questions please give us a call at 888.909.2267.
