At the Shasta Family YMCA Camp McCumber Resident Camp, youth have the opportunity to explore nature, discover their talents, try new interests, gain independence, and make lasting friendships and memories. Campers choose and participate in daily activities, including canoeing, fishing, archery, arts & crafts, hiking, campfires, and sports activities. They learn respect for their fellow campers, for their own abilities, and for the outdoors.
Camp is about positive experiences and personal growth. Special to YMCA camps is the Ragger Program - in which campers set individual goals for themselves focused on developing stronger body, mind, and spirit. Rags exist as outward symbols of inward goals.
We want every youth to have the opportunity to set goals and achieve them, thus, unique to the YMCA Camp McCumber is the availability of funding support so that no one is turned away due to an inability to pay. Through our scholarships and financial assistance program, we are able to provide camp for youth who otherwise would not have the opportunity to participate.
