With over 65 years of tradition in helping children experience the outdoors while being a part of a small camp community where everyone knows your name. Camp Algonquin incorporates the YMCA core values of caring, respect, responsibility, and honesty as a part of each activity and relationship. Our camp motto is: “I AM THIRD” and in today’s challenging world we feel it is important that campers learn to accept our creator as the number one focus, while caring and respecting others is secondary. With the acceptance of this motto we feel the learning experiences at Camp Algonquin will help build self confidence, teach new skills, and enhance relationships with fellow campers and counselors. All of which will aid your camper in living the motto of “I AM THIRD.”
Camp Algonquin has over 65 years of traditions since its founding in 1946. Campers from early years now send their children and grandchildren to camp so they may develop the same values and hold on to the wonderful memories Camp Algonquin instills in each camper. Our camp session structure is designed to provide many options when choosing the right experience for you and your camper. We are excited to present a wonderful opportunity for families by offering Adventure Camp sessions at the same time as our Resident Camp sessions.
