Family Camps @ YMCA Camp Weona

Considering going to camp with your child and the whole family? Join us for an exciting, fun-filled family getaway on President’s Day, Memorial Day, or Labor Day weekend!

A YMCA Camp Weona getaway offers you and your family a chance to spend quality time in peaceful, beautiful surroundings where you can enjoy nature and the company of family and newfound friends. Whether you’re age two or 92, there’s something for everyone in the perfect atmosphere of the great outdoors. Nestled in Wyoming County, Weona offers nearly 1,000 acres of picturesque forests, lakes, hiking trails, babbling brooks, and rolling hills. Outdoor activities are planned throughout the day for the whole family to enjoy.

Choose from our selection of Family Camps, including:

  • Memorial Day Family Camp (May 22-25, 2015)
  • Labor Day Family Camp (September 4-7, 2015)
  • Alumni Family Camp (October 3, 2015 – one day event, not overnight)
  • Winter Family Camp (February 2016)


Overnight family camps run from Friday evening through Monday morning — giving you three nights of fun, adventure, and learning, as well as a chance to make new friends.


During our Memorial Day and Labor Day Camps, cabin accommodations provide each family with its own private cabin that sleeps 10-14 people. Cabins are rustic, but do include bunk beds and electricity. Centralized bathroom facilities are located in a separate building and showers are available in our pool house.

During our Winter Family Camp, families stay in cozy Hyde Lodge, which offers farmhouse living with private rooms and a centralized living room with a fireplace. The Lodge has bunk beds in each room and several common private bathrooms with showers.


Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are hearty, home-cooked meals prepared by our staff. Food is served buffet-style in our dining hall. Special consideration is given to participants who have allergies or prefer a vegetarian option.

  • Swimming

Challenge by Choice

At camp, we follow a “Challenge by Choice” philosophy. This means our professional staff guide, instruct, and encourage participants through lots of adventure and fun activity — but the decision to participate is always up to you. We encourage everyone to challenge themselves at their own pace!


Fees include lodging, meals, and all activities. All fees must be paid in full upon registration. Children under four years of age are FREE!
