Outdoor Sports Camps

Kids have fun in the fresh air learning about equipment and technique.

Updated program information for 2019 will be available in January. Please check back.

Archery/Slingshot Camp

Two amazing and traditional target sports, the bow and arrow and the slingshot, are very popular today. Participants will gain understanding and learn to properly use them both safely. Campers will learn to make and use their own targets, and learn the basics of aiming and target shooting.

Archery Camp

While learning the fundamentals of archery, campers examine equipment close up, identify the parts of the bow and arrow, and learn the science behind drawing the bow and releasing the arrow. Instructors teach proper grip, stance and aim alignment. Equipment is provided.

Fishing Camp

Kids get hooked on fishing as they learn basic fishing skills. Lakes provide the scene for fishing fun using the catch-and release method. Campers can bring their own pole and tackle, or equipment will be provided.

Climbing Camp

Campers embark on a climbing adventure! Campers will gain new skills and self-confidence every day through a variety of climbing activities. Campers test their strength, strategy, and skill while learning safety procedures, belay techniques, knot tying and proper climbing techniques. On Friday, campers test their climbing skills on one of YMCA Camp Ihduhapi’s high adventure elements!
