Thank you for participating in YMCA Summer programs that provide opportunities for your child to learn, grow and thrive when school is not in session.

The Y is committed to offering a variety of opportunities based on need and interest in our community.
One growing area of interest is to explore the nature in our backyard more in depth and learn more about the incredible environment in the area.

To meet this need we are excited to share with you an exciting new opportunity the Y will be offering called Nature Power program at Lake George Regional Park in Oak Grove, MN.

This unique program will offer nature-based adventures every day. There will be activities and field trips that will discover the wonders of our land, lakes, sky and so much more.

Nature Power will be led by me - Katie O'Toole.  I am the same program leader your child has met and enjoyed summer fun with last year at Day Camp Guy Robinson.

Plus, you can choose 3, 4 or 5 day options with Nature Power which offers you flexibility when planning your family's summer schedule.

Along with the new Nature Power program you can choose for your child if interested, there are other enriching program options your child can also participate in this summer.

There is YMCA Day Camp at Day Camp Heritage and Day Camp Manitou, which offer a five-day program of structured physical, social and educational activities.

Another option is Summer Power at Emma B. Howe YMCA or Andover YMCA, which offer 3, 4 and 5 day options where your child can enjoy adventure and age-appropriate discovery activities, special interest clubs and field trips guided by special weekly themes.

We look forward to a great 2020 summer and look forward to you joining in the new Nature Power program and our other great Y Day Camp and Summer Power based on your child's interest.

To learn more about the programs, visit or call 612-230-9622. To register for the new Nature Power or Summer Power programs, registration will be open early February.  Register now for YMCA Day Camp at Day Camp Heritage and Day Camp Manitou at /camps/ymca_day_camp.

Thank you for your great participation in the Y.
