At YMCA Camp Potawotami, we focus on the ABCs of Camping - working to increase camper's 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. Making new friends and being a good friend in return helps campers gain a sense of belonging. The Character traits we focus on are Honesty, Caring, Respect, Responsibility. Our unique Wampum Bead program encourages campers to choose a character trait to work on throughout the entire year.
