Get ready for your kids to have the best summer ever at the Boll Family YMCA! Enter to win a FREE week at Camp Okonoka on Belle Isle!
It’s hard to beat a summer at Camp Okonoka! The YMCA camp hosted on Belle Isle is the perfect place for your kids to spend their days swimming in the river, exploring nature paths, playing kickball and GAGA (the latest version of dodgeball) or eating lunch under a tree with friends. They’ll also earn bragging rights for spending their summer days on an island in Detroit.
The Boll Family YMCA, located in downtown Detroit, also hosts a series of smaller specialized camp throughout the summer. From baking to robotics, fashion and forensics, the Y camp is the perfect place for your kids (ages 5 to 9). In addition to being inside, campers also take trips to Grand Circus Park, the Riverwalk and other fun off-site locations in the city.
Your littlest ones can also have fun at the Preschool Summer Day Camp (for ages 3 to 5). With a 1 to 6 teacher to child ratio, your kids can learn and have fun at the Y! Activities include arts and crafts, sports, music, field trips, swimming, and much more!
