TRIANGLE Y CAMP
Friends, Fun, & Adventure
Every day brings new excitement, new activities, new friends, and new adventures. With this much at stake it's no wonder sessions fill quickly.
The success of any child's camping experience depends upon who is leading the way. Over 40 people comprise the staff. Much time is spent searching for individuals with just the right qualifications to give campers the best possible experience. Staff member are selected for their ability to work with kids, their maturity, patience, and spiritual depth. They undergo professional and in-depth training prior to the camp season.
Our traditional resident camp is filled with fun and nonstop excitement! Through this program, campers have the opportunity to learn new skills or further existing ones by participating in the many activities camp has to offer. In a safe, healthy environment, care and guidance is always on hand to encourage children to try new activities.
For the younger, first-time camper we offer Mini Camp - 3 fun-filled days of camp activities geared more towards your child’s age, interests, and abilities. Much time and attention is put into mini camp activities, knowing that this may be your child’s first time away from home. With at least one counselor to a four camper ratio, each camper will receive plenty of care and attention.
Beginner: This is a great program to introduce campers to horse care and riding instruction. Each camper will be assigned a horse for the week, developing a bond and feel for one another. Throughout the week campers will become familiar with western riding, parts of the horse, difference in tack, and proper horse care.
Intermediate: This program is for campers with prior riding experience or those who have gone through Beginner Camp. Campers will continue strengthening the skills listed above while moving to a new level of knowledge and training. With progressive riding instruction, campers will spend more time in the arena working on agility, riding styles, and negotiating obstacles.
Advanced: Continuation of Beginner and Intermediate skills. Includes extended rides, overnight camping trip with horses, riding horses in water, and much more!

Summer camp is one of the highest, positive-impact activities in which a child can participate. So much can happen in a week's time to improve that ever so fragile self-esteem that we all try to instill in our kids.
Our facilities are top notch. The 400 acres are brimming with forest, prairie, lake, birds, and wildlife. When kids come, they grow in their confidence, character, and self-esteem; they learn to share, to care, and to love; and they make memories that will last a lifetime - it's a "magical" experience. We are committed to the basic Christian-based values that have made YMCA camping as timeless as the land.
We believe a summer camp experience is one of the very best investments you can make in you child and we look forward to seeing your child at Triangle Y camp this summer.
