YMCA Camp Days Extended to Winnebago Students

​The YMCA of Rock River Valley is expanding access to Camp Days for students in the Village of Winnebago. Camp Winnebago has aligned it schedule to be open on all days when the Village of Winnebago schools are out of session. Camp Winnebago is located at 5804 N. Main St. in Rockford and serves children 1st through 6th grade during the school year.
 
Camp Winnebago sits on 150+ acres of land and provides the perfect environment for children to learn, grow, explore and thrive in a YMCA Day Camp program. Camp Days offers activities such as archery, rock climbing, hikes, and character development. The site offers heated and air conditioned indoor buildings and fabulous outdoor amenities.
 
“Camp is a place where all children belong and can be themselves. They can try new things, make new friends and be a part of something great,” said Bif Buchan, Executive Director, Camping Services YMCA. “We are excited about this opportunity to provide greater access for the Village of Winnebago families. We hope there is enough interest from the community to green light plans to provide buses to transport children to and from camp – allowing families the ease of a local drop off/pick up location.”
 
YMCA Camp Days are $25 per day and run throughout the school year. Full week options are offered during winter and spring break. Registration is now open for Camp Days at Camp Winnebago YMCA. For more information, contact Camping Services YMCA at 815-489-3374 or campinfo@rockriverymca.org.
