Summer Camp

In 1918, a YMCA program director took a group of boys to Maquoketa to go camping.  What started as a small group of boys learning character and outdoor skills, has turned into over a thousand children every summer in our day camp and overnight camp programs.  While some of the activities have changed, the character development is the same.  Accredited through the American Camp Association, we are a professional camp operation.
