Welcome to Camp Weona!
Discover what summer dreams are made of at YMCA Camp Weona. During their stay campers participate in adventure programming, outdoor living skills, athletics, and the creative arts. Through these activities, campers develop self-confidence, teamwork, an appreciation of the outdoors, creativity, and pride in themselves and their newly learned skills. Most importantly, they come back with fond memories and friendships that last a lifetime. YMCA Camp Weona serves children 5-17 years old with exciting summer camp options for one, two, or several week stays.
