Another summer is in the books here at YMCA Camp Pepin and it might have been the best one yet! More than 570 campers had the opportunity to spend a week doing sports, games, arts and crafts, campfires, zip lining, learning new skills, eating great food, and making friends and memories that will last a lifetime!
One week of camp represents less than three-hundredths of a percent of the average person's lifespan, but if that one week is spent at summer camp, it can be a life-changing experience. Some campers arrived at camp nervous, unsure or homesick. But they all left with a new sense of confidence, a new set of friends and new skills -physical, mental and emotional - that they will use for life.
It takes a full year's worth of hard work from so many different people to make a summer of camp possible. Staff and counselors spent many hours planning, parents and campers made huge commitments and of course, all of the donors and volunteers helped make everything possible. I personally want to thank each person involved for another amazing summer here at YMCA Camp Pepin!

Week #8 RecapAug 12 2014
Our Challenge Course at Camp Pepin was full of excitement this week with over 20 campers ready to conquer their fear of heights and excel through each challenge. Each day, Cory, our Challenge Course expert, lead campers through the Faith Pole, Zip Line Course, Climbing Wall, Giant Swing, and the Ropes Course. The campers had a great time, some still feeling an adrenaline rush from all of it, and excited for the next challenge they will face! Great job campers for conquering your fears and challenging yourselves! Heepwah!
