Be a Y Camp Partner Help Grow Positive
Experiences for Kids
Building Strong Kids
Nurturing independence, self-confidence, leadership and relationships
Appreciation of the tremendous value of the camp experience for a child’s development has been at the core of Y Winnipeg activities since the 1890s with the establishment of Camp Stephens on Lake of the Woods.
Over the decades the Y has operated Camp Stephens along with other camps to make the camp experience as accessible as possible to children in Manitoba.
This focus has served thousands of individuals and contributed to the creation of community leaders and successful citizens.
For kids of all ages, camp is a proven catalyst for nurturing independence, self-confidence, leadership, interpersonal relationships and overall wellness in body, mind and spirit. It provides a wealth of life experiences they may never be exposed to in any other single setting.
Kids need places where they can be themselves without emotional or physical intimidation. Y camp programs focus on encouraging teamwork and creating an atmosphere where children and youth feel safe, valued and free to express themselves.
