It's time to register your child at YMCA Camp Wa Wa Segowea!

According to the calendar, Spring is just around the corner, but are we really still expecting some kind of winter?   We've been pretty lucky this year after a lot of snow last year, but whether snow happens or not, the countdown is continuing until the first day of camp!  And that date is June 24th!

What is your child doing this summer?  Spending a session or two at Wa Wa Segowea is the ideal opportunity for a child to do so many things.  It's a unique community where kids participate in activities. They are accepted for who they are, and they gain self-confidence as well as a sense of pride and accomplishment through completing tasks and challenges.  At camp, kids learn by doing, living and experiencing things for themselves.  While practicing both these new and old skills, it's natural that there will be improvement, which then builds self-esteem.  

Registration for camp is happening right now and kids are signing up faster this year then the last two!  That first day and first session begins June 24th and here's the whole summer rundown-

Many campers from last year and before, are returning, carrying on a tradition here where kids recognize that there is no place quite like Segowea.    Whether it's playing kickball, in swim class, or just sitting and talking to friends at many locations around camp, the magic happens.  It happens before you know it, and pretty soon, these campers are telling their friends back home, YOU HAVE TO COME TO THIS CAMP!
