Thank you to all parents, campers and staff for another great summer!

Our Summer Camp program is a LICENSED DAY CAMP through the State of Wisconsin. All of our camp counselors are at least 18 years of age, undergo a criminal background check, are certified in First Aid and CPR and receive extensive pre-camp training.
Your 6 to 12 year old can comfortably spend the whole day away from home, while getting active, making crafts, attending weekly field trips, and creating new friendships in an outdoor environment.
Summer Camp operates ten action packed weeks throughout the summer for children ages 6 to 12 years of age.
* Anyone looking for a camp experience for those younger than 6, please consider YMCA Kamp Kermit program.
Physical activity, self-esteem, social interaction and skill building are all part of the youth Summer Camp experience.
Camp Counselors will also incorporate the 5 Core Values (Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, Sportsmanship, & Caring) as part of the experience.

The mission of the Allouez Summer Camp is to provide trained leadership and the resources of the natural surroundings to help each camper achieve his/her fullest potential in terms of mental development, physical well being, social growth, and emotional well being.
The mission comes to life through the emphasis of the 5 Core Values; Honest, Respect, Responsibility, Caring, & Sportsmanship. Challenging people to accept and demonstrate these values is the foundation for the development of important character traits that will remain with a child for his/her entire life.
The first goal for the Allouez Day Camp is to build assets in our campers. Through our day camp program, we try to develop specific assets everyday, including; strengthening cultural competency; providing a caring climate; using youth as resources; offering a safe place for our campers; and using responsible adults as role models.
The second goal of the Allouez Day Camp program is help all of our campers develop as individuals. Below are some ways in which we help our campers develop:
Campers grow personally. They are given the chance to experience new things and interact with other children their own age on a daily basis.
Campers learn new skills. Whether it’s playing a new game, developing an existing skill, or developing their social skills, campers will leave camp having learned something they can remember and use for a lifetime.
Campers learn lifetime values. From the simplest values and attitudes like sportsmanship, sharing, and giving respect to others, comes our basis for making more complex decisions as we mature.
Campers have FUN! Without fun, the above reasons for children to attend day camp become harder to accomplish. Games, stories, crafts, sports, and other activities are all done with the camper as the primary focus.
