Overnight Camp

YMCA Camp Kresge’s overnight camp provides an opportunity for children & teens to develop new skills, build confidence, and make lifelong friendships. From traditional camp to leadership programs, Camp Kresge has the perfect program for your camper!

If your family is in need of additional assistance, please complete a Financial Assistance Application and submit it to the Camp Office, along with your camp registration form. 

A non-refundable deposit for each session is required at the time of registration to hold your camper’s spot.
