Entering grades 1-4 in fall.
The YMCA Camp Colman program is designed to allow each camper to have a safe and fun experience in a beautiful natural setting. In this session, campers are grouped by grade and gender identity in comfortable cabins with electricity and bathrooms. See more details below.
Mini Camp programs are a great way for new campers to become familiar with being away from home overnight in an outdoor setting for a shorter length of time. Programs are offered at the start and end of the camp season. This program is for campers entering grades 1-4 and is a four-day, three-night camp experience. Campers will build skills through a wide range of activities, such as arts and crafts, swimming, boating, archery, climbing and the giant swing. Campers are encouraged to create their own schedule, engage in mixed aged play, and be a part of camp’s larger community while still engaging in intentional cabin time to build a closer community. Days end with gorgeous sunsets over the Olympic Mountains, the singing of our camp song, ""Tell Me Why,"" and time for restorative based reflection.
We offer a voluntary, two-tiered pricing program based on the needs of your family. This program is completely confidential and in no way affects the quality of the experience your child receives.
$150 Non-Refundable deposit is required for all registrations and is applied to the total amount due.
Tier 1 represents the full cost of camp operations.
Tier 2 represents the full cost of camp operations, in addition to long-term wear, tear, and depreciation. Families who voluntarily pay Tier 2 prices help us to ensure our camps and outdoor properties continue to thrive.
Our goal is to remove barriers that prevent anyone from participating in our programs, including financial barriers. If our lowest tier price creates a financial barrier that prevents you from participating in our programs, we invite you to fill out a Financial Assistance Application prior to registration opening. Once we have reviewed your application, you will receive a code by email that you can use at checkout to automatically apply your approved award.
