Director's Message

Dear Campers, Parents, and Friends of Camp,

First, I hope you and your family are safe, healthy, and well during these challenging times.

At this time, we have made the difficult, but clear, decision to cancel our summer camp programs for 2020.  Impacted campers have received an email regarding refund options.  All camp programming and events prior to August 1, 2020 are cancelled.  This includes our Open House events scheduled for May 9 and May 31.  

As updates are available regarding future programming, we will communicate with registered families by email and will post additional information here.  A Summer 2020 FAQ resource is available to additional details.

Please contact me directly at (989) 345-2630 or BAMiller@SaginawYMCA.org with any questions or as I can be helpful.
