Young family outside cabin at YMCA family camp

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 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
  • Labor Day Family Camp
  • Alumni Family Camp

Duration

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.

Accommodations

During our Memorial Day and Labor Day Camps, families can choose to sleep privately or invite other family friends to stay with them in one of our 10 or 14 person cabins.  For convenience to our families, centralized bathroom facilities are located in each Village Unit. Centrally located in our lower camp, families have access to our shower facilities located in our pool house.

Food

We value quality time that can be found around the dinner table and that is why we serve family-style meals in our dining hall.  We prepare and bring to the table hearty home-cooked meals at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Family members making vegetarian and vegan diet choices, have restrictions such as gluten-free and dairy-free, or have food allergies will be accommodated to the best of our availability. Let us know a week prior to your arrival of any diet choices, restrictions, and allergies.
