PARENT'S CORNER

 
Thank you for your interest in YMCA Camp Abe Lincoln and we welcome you to our youth movement. The personal growth we see in children after just one week of camp keeps us passionate about our camping program.  

During your child's time at camp, they will have the opportunity to participate in some amazing activities.  More importantly, they will be engaged by counselors who work to instill the four core values of the YMCA: Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your child's life.                                                                                                                      
                                                                      
Never been to camp before?  Check out our events page that lists our open houses and community events.  These are great opportunities to alleviate anxiety in campers, or parents :), who want to learn more about camp before summer arrives.
