WHAT’S UNIQUE ABOUT A Y SUMMER?

When school's out, it's time to relax, decompress, and have fun with friends. Achievement, Relationships and Belonging is what Camp Nakota weekly day camp is all about! The opening ceremony kicks off the day at the YMCA. Next campers board the bus and head out to area parks or engaging field trips. Campers enjoy time in the Splash Center each day and mark the day's end with a closing ceremony at the Y.  Camp Nakota will provide youth with camp experiences and activities to promote skill development and a safe place to build healthy relationships. Come join us for the best summer ever!
