a break well spent

At a time of year when most kids are inside, winter campers are having a blast tromping around in the snow and meeting new friends at YMCA Camp Minikani. Your child’s counselor will guide the experience as they gain a sense of independence by being away from home for four days and three nights. In addition to a handful of adventures at Minikani, your child will visit Sunburst Ski Area in Kewaskum, Wisconsin, where they may snowboard, ski or snow-tube. On their last night, campers and counselors celebrate “New Year’s Eve, Eve, Eve,” which is a camper-created carnival and dance party, culminating with a homemade ball drop.
