What to expect at arrival

Many parents of campers feel a bit uneasy about sending their kids to camp (especially if it is their first time at a sleep away camp).  Here at Lake Wenatchee YMCA Camp we strive to deliver a top notch quality experience for the whole family, MOM and DAD included!  From the moment you arrive at camp you’ll begin to experience what we refer to as “Camp Magic”.  As you pull into the camp’s driveway you’ll be greeted by our camp staff and directed into the lower parking lot.  Once there you will be greeted by the camp director and our team of camp staff and junior counselors.  You’ll check in briefly with the camp director where he will answer any questions you may have and then you’ll be escorted to the main lodge and taken through the rest of the check in process, We’ll even carry your luggage for you! 

Once at the Lodge, you will be greeted by your friendly YMCA staff where you will be officially checked in, given a camp schedule and information on how to follow the camp fun online from your home.  You will also find out your child’s cabin and counselor, and be given the opportunity to purchase an all camp photo and camp t-shirt. 

Next step is into the Lodge, (again you will be escorted the whole time so don’t worry about losing your way) where our camp nurse will meet you and discuss any health related issues we need to be aware of.  This is the time where you’ll turn in all medications for your camper (prescription and over the counter).  All campers undergo a brief health screen for lice and/or pink eye.

Once you are done with this step you’ll be escorted to the cabin where you will be introduced to your child’s counselor and you’ll have the opportunity to ask them questions about camp life and the week ahead. 

As always you may contact the camp director at 509.763.9622 or via email at tmcelravy@lwycamp.org if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s stay before, during, or after camp.
