It may only be February, but here at camp we’re already busy working to make 2017 the best summer ever for our campers and their families. We’re hiring amazing staff members, planning new program areas like the American Ninja Warrior course and attending conferences with fellow camp professionals to see how other camps provide amazing experiences to their campers.

Part of planning for the upcoming summer involves looking back at last summer. We’ve poured over emails and surveys and we’ve loved reading through comments from last year. It feels good to revisit the overwhelmingly positive feedback from our camp families. We’re proud of the great things that are happening here at Camp Wood YMCA…but don’t just take our word for it. Here are a few of our favorite quotes from 2016 parents and campers.

Do you have something to tell us about your experience last year? What are you most looking forward to in 2017? Email us your feedback at and we may share it on social media this spring. We always love hearing from our campers and their parents!
