YMCA Camp Kitaki

Adventure Mini

Adventure Mini

Length of Program: 
1/2 Week

The perfect way to "try us out" or fit Camp Kitaki into your busy summer! You choose Sunday through Wednesday, or Wednesday Through Saturday. Be prepared for a schedule packed with structured age-appropriate, traditional camp activities and staff specially trained for your child's age group to create a great camp experience. Some highlights include plenty of swim time, archery, and opportunities to grow personally while making new friends. This is a way for new campers to try camping for just half a week. Mini Campers do not experience all of the activities (such as horseback riding) a camper staying for the full week would.

Adventure Mini Campers get to sample the magic of Kitaki at a slower pace designed to allow for increased connection to the counselors and more time to rest after a day filled with adventures that spark their imagination and encourage them to explore the world around them.  Adventure Mini Campers spend all day with the same cabin group with counselors specially trained to help them make new friends and feel comfortable being away from home. In addition to trying out many of the summer camp activities, Mini Campers take part in a special Mini Camp campfire and a special lake time just for them.


Adventure Mini Campers stay in the air-conditioned camper cabins located nearest to the Dining Hall and main camp area. Each cabin has a bathroom located inside, 15 beds in a generous space, and an attached porch. Each cabin will house 10 kids, 2 staff and a teen volunteer.
