Positive Role Models
Michigan YMCA camp counselors are carefully selected from a pool of applicants that includes both returning camp veterans and new recruits from colleges around the country. Staff members possess experience, maturity, enthusiasm, and a strong desire to be a positive role model for children. Extensive background checks and in-depth training prior to the arrival of children ensures a safe and protected environment in which all campers can grow and learn.
Additionally, Michigan YMCA camps create and maintain a secure social environment where everyone is respected and included. Consequently, social interaction is enhanced and new friendships are easily forged.
