At Camp Winona children develop and grow throughout the summer as they learn and connect with friends and nature. We teach every camper about Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility; the same core values taught throughout the Y. While learning valuable social skills, campers also learn and engage in many adventurous outdoor skill programs that are sure to spark their interest.

WEEKLY THEMES: Each week will have a theme that will be lightly integrated into the all-camp activities. Many campers bring a fun themed outfit for our opening Campfire and/or night activities. Pay attention to see what our 2022 themes will be.
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to attend Camp and we will do our best to help get your child to Camp, no matter your financial ability. If you are interested in a scholarship to send your child to Camp, please fill out the Financial Assistance Request form and submit it here. Please note that add ons are not eligible for scholarship.
To express our gratitude for your service, we are happy to offer scholarships for military families through generous donations. If a parent is currently deployed, on active duty, or a veteran, please fill out this form and submit to the Camp Office!. All we will need is a copy of your military ID submitted with the Camp registration form to let you know what percentage scholarship you can receive. Thank you for serving our country.
Each camper participates in land and water activities daily. Campers choose their activities based on their interests to perfect new skills. Archery, riflery, arts and crafts, survival skills, teambuilding, team sports, dance and music, drama, hiking and more round out our land activities. On the water we have swimming, canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, fishing and water toys.
Campers will have the opportunity to visit the Camp Store throughout the week; for extra snacks and to purchase souvenirs, shirts, and cool Camp swag. During check in, parents can put money into their camper’s accounts. No cash will be accepted during the week from campers. The average amount for a camper account is $25. Balances are nonrefundable. Anything not used will go towards our Annual Campaign to help send kids to Camp. The store will also be open during check out.
Pre-written letters to your camper and Care Packages can be given to staff during check in for distribution during the week. All care packages and letters must have camper’s name (first and last), cabin, and day for delivery. You will also have the option to send letters via email which will be printed and handed out to the campers daily.
