Camp Wakonda

About Us

The Mission of the YMCA is 'To put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy Spirit, Mind and Body for all.' At Camp Wakonda we also strive 'To provide campers, of all ages, the best experience of their year, in an outdoor setting.'

At Camp Wakonda we live the four core values of the YMCA, Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility, every day. Living in a cabin with a group of nine other campers and two counselors you quickly learn these values are more than just words and lead to a more harmonious cabin. Our staff of dedicated young Christian men and women are living examples of the Y mission. Campers learn new life skills, develop friendships and grow in self-esteem and confidence. The joy and composure they gain at camp stays with them long after they return home.
