Camp Independence

YMCA Metro Chicago

Campers have fun while playing sports, creating arts and crafts, singing around the campfire, paddling a boat, and making new friends.  For many people, this may be their first chance to spend a night away from home. We encourage attendees to be active participants in their own care as well as their continued development of independence. Most importantly, the prescription for camp is fun! We serve youth ages 7-19 and adults 20 and older with sessions divided by age group allowing the staff to provide age-appropriate programming.
