Help Campers Reach New Heights

Every year, we rely on donations to help ensure that all of the people in our community can access our services. There are lots of ways you can give, and we’re grateful for your help!


This year we are raising funds for our new High Ropes Course. The new course is more accessible, allows more campers to climb at one time and has elements for Youth and Teen Campers. The ropes course is an important part of the camp experience as it provides opportunities for accomplishments, goal setting, encouraging others and bravery. Help our campers reach new heights by contributing today!

The ABC's of Camp Potawotami

At YMCA Camp Potawotami, we focus on what we call the A, B, C s of camping. We work to increase campers’ sense of accomplishment and belonging while they learn about positive character traits and values. Our tools are well- trained staff, carefully planned programs, and safe, clean facilities.


Campers gain a sense of accomplishment by trying activities and developing new skills. For many campers, being away from home for a week is an important accomplishment in itself. We hope these real world accomplishments will raise the self-confidence and self- esteem of each camper.


Making new friends and being a good friend helps campers learn about a sense of belonging. Living in a cabin with other children and counselors gives each camper a lesson in friendship building and teamwork. Each person has responsibilities and is a valued part of the YMCA Camp Potawotami community.


We discuss character traits and values in many ways during the week and place an emphasis on learning, growing and doing your best. Our core values are Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. Our unique Wampum Bead program also encourages campers to choose a character trait to work on during camp and the entire year.
