School-Age Adventure Camp
YMCA Summer Camp is for kids grades K-5th. Summer Camp gives them the opportunity to explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence, make lasting friendships, memories, and of course, it's fun too. Camping, like many Y programs is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. Kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.
Teen Extreme Adventure Camp
This Teen Adventure Camp is for rising 6th-10th graders. Teen adventure Camp is a week-long program that is operated out of Camp Red Feather. During this week teens will stay active by participating in activities such as, rock climbing, kayaking, hiking, tubing, swimming, a variety of sports, and other recreational activities. In addition, teens will also build friendships and develop interpersonal and leadership skills.
Counselors Internship Program
Counselor interns are campers from the past years who participate in a training program to prepare them to take on the prestigious role of a future Camp Red Feather staff member. For three fun-filled weeks, interns gain skills and principles to become the best leaders they can be!
