It's Camp Lakewood with a wintertime twist! Parents, if you're struggling with activities for your children while they are off for winter break while you still have to work, they will have a blast at YMCA Camp Lakewood Winter Camp Dec. 27-30. Our winter camp is full of fun and exciting activities such as a climbing tower, archery, arts & crafts, nature center and more. And because it's winter we've got something even the summer camp campers don't have – winter activities.
There are bobsled races, luge races, hockey and counselor curling. Snow or no snow, your child will have the coolest – no pun intended – winter break story to tell about the fantastic time they had at YMCA Camp Lakewood. And it didn't include electronics – what a novel concept!
