Summer fun just around the bend at Camp Y-Koda

Summer is just around the bend and adventure awaits at Camp Y-Koda.

Explore the bends of the Sheboygan River as it meanders throughout the county by participating in one of Camp YKoda’s many upcoming canoe and kayak trips. You can also volunteer to help keep the river clean by participating in the 11th annual Sheboygan River Clean Up.

Summer Camp season is about to begin, so if you haven’t already signed your child up, now is the time. Although Summer Camp starts June 12, we just can’t wait, so Camp Y-Koda is offering the Almost Summer Slumber Party as a preview to the joys of summer sleepovers - s’mores around the campfire included.

Discovering the Sheboygan River Path is a series of free canoe and kayak trips taking place the afternoons of May 13 and 21 and June 10. These trips will highlight a river mapping project that is in progress, and instruction and equipment is provided.

Do your part to help care for the river by volunteering at the 11th Annual Sheboygan River Clean Up on the morning of May 20. Pick up litter on land or from a canoe and then join in a celebration at Camp Y-Koda after the work is done.

Early Release Kayak trips provide children age 10-14 with an introduction to kayaking on Wednesdays after school on May 24 and 31. Children may sign up with or without an adult and instruction and equipment is provided.

If your child can’t wait for Summer Camp to start or has not yet experienced an overnight at Camp Y-Koda and would like to give it a try, sign him or her up for the Almost Summer Slumber Party on May 19-20. The slumber party is open to children age 6-12 and will begin with a pizza party followed by a nature hike to search for a family of Great Horned Owls that have recently been spotted around camp. The night will conclude with s’mores around a warm campfire and a movie before bedtime. Saturday will be packed full of traditional camp activities like archery (age 7+), canoeing, kayaking and more.

Openings are still available in Camp Y-Koda’s Summer Camp program, which provides children age 4-16 with the opportunity to reconnect with nature, play and learn in the outdoors and make new friends all summer long.

Traditional Day Camps are offered each week, and a variety of exciting Specialty Camps are offered each week such as Road America Racing, Mini Wet ‘n Wild, Apostle Island Adventure, Art Works, Survivor Resident and so much more. The Pee Wee and Eco-Buds programs are designed specifically for the youngest of campers as an introduction to exploring the outdoors.

Summer Camp staff members are certified in Lifeguarding, First Aid and CPR for the Professional Rescuer and undergo intensive training to keep your kids safe and transportation and extended care are offered to make getting your kids to camp easy.
