Grades 5 & 6: 56'ers Camp

Our 56'ers Camp provides our 5th and 6th graders the opportunity to develop life and leadership skills through traditional camp program activities. 56'ers Camp challenges campers to develop the initiative and strength to make good choices based on the YMCA’s character development values.
