Youth Adventure Camps in Northern Michigan
We have a solid reputation for outstanding camping programs that began in 1904.
Our boys' overnight camp (Hayo-Went-Ha) and girls' summer camp (Arbutus Hayo-Went-Ha) have proven to leave a lasting and positive influence on the lives of campers. Join the generations of families who have sent their children to a YMCA Hayo-Went-Ha camp! Learn our values and traditions, experience the fun and adventure, and create memories that last a lifetime.
Camp Hayo-Went-Ha is on Torch Lake, and Camp Arbutus is on Arbutus Lake near Traverse City.
They offer challenging wilderness adventure programs for each age level. Hiking, canoeing, biking, kayaking and sailing take place at beautiful locations in Northern Michigan, Florida, Alaska, and Canada. On-site activities include sailing, archery, crafts, canoeing, swimming, climbing towers, ropes course, and drama as well as team sports, campfires, and skits. In addition, a fine horse riding program is offered at the girls' camp and SCUBA is offered at the boys' camp.
