Summer 2020 Updates

After months of deliberation and contingency planning, and with the support of senior leaders at the YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities and our dedicated community board, Camp Icaghowan has made the heartbreaking decision to cancel our overnight camp program this summer.

The YMCA Camping Team worked hard to plan for every contingency; however, the uncertainties are still too great with the ever-evolving situation surrounding COVID-19. This summer we've decided the most prudent course of action is to not hold overnight camp programming.

At Camp Icaghowan, we teach resilience and perseverance, so that we can make it through tough situations. None of us ever imagined we would see a summer without camp, but we are confident that the spirit of camp will endure.

Although our overnight camp programs are being cancelled, the YMCA does intend to offer summer experiences through our Day Camps, Family Camps, Nature Power, Summer Power, Summer Uproar and Childcare programs. If you are interested in any of these program offerings, please visit our website to see availability and schedules.

Summer camp is magic. It has the power to transform even the shyest camper into a confident leader. It turns strangers into instant friends. It changes barriers into successes.

Through fun like canoeing, archery and horseback riding, campers gain confidence as they build skills. By living with other campers, they learn to work together and demonstrate the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

At Y camps, our staff members are enthusiastic and well trained. They guide campers of all backgrounds and abilities through programming that builds character in a safe, encouraging environment.

Camp Icaghowan offers programming for kids ages 7 to 17.
