For Youth Development.  For Healthy Living.  For Social Responsibility.

During YMCA Camp Horizon, a week-long overnight camp for youth in foster care, one girl stood out as being particularly shy. But during cabin time she shared that her dream was to perform in front of big crowds. Her counselor encouraged her to take small risks throughout the week.

At the end of the week the camper came bursting into her cabin, shouting "I did it! I sang in front of the WHOLE camp! I'm not afraid anymore - I found my voice!"

Help children take risks, learn new skills, and find their voice at YMCA summer camps.

Camp Horizon at Camp McCumber

  

The Shasta Family YMCA hosts a specialized overnight camp for youth in foster care located at Camp McCumber. Because of the tremendous community support and by a YMCA grant, we are able to host this camp for our third year. There are lots of fun experiences to share from our time at camp and how it has made a great impact in the lives of many youth.

During the five-day camp, youth enjoy classic camp activities, such as nature hikes, canoe races, archery, crafts, organized cabin games, campfires, songs, and skits. For some, camp is a time to spend with siblings who don’t get to see each other often, and for others, it is a place to be valued and heard, make new friends, and gain self-confidence. Camp has something for everyone!

Many youth expressed how they were hesitant about coming at first and didn’t know what to expect at camp. But at the end of the week, they didn’t want to go home because they had so much fun and were so grateful for the opportunity to attend! Many expressed interest in coming back and taking on a leadership role as a CIT (Counselor in Training) the next year!

It is an honor to give these children a relaxing and fun week, a new perspective, and lasting memories for years to come!
