Frequently Asked Questions

Send your child to camp with a backpack to keep all of their belongings together. Campers should also bring their own water bottle to stay hydrated during the day. Please have your camper bring a swimsuit, towel, insect repellent, a hat for sun protection, and sunscreen to help prevent sunburn. It is recommended that parents or guardians apply sunscreen to campers’ arms, legs and back prior to arriving at camp. Please be sure to label all of your child’s belongings with their name or initials. The YMCA is not responsible for any items that are lost or stolen, and under no circumstances will reimburse lost, stolen or broken items.

Campers should wear clothing suitable for an active day at camp. Appropriate items would include shorts, t-shirts, light jackets (for chilly mornings), and athletic shoes (no sandals). Our camps use discovery and play as a major part of our camp program, thus we encourage you to dress your child in clothing that you do not mind getting dirty or stained in the course of your child engaging in a fun activity.

Yes, though our staff make regular trips to the restrooms and drinking fountains, parents are ultimately responsible for sending their child with plenty of fluids for the day.

In order to keep your child safe, campers wanting to swim in the deep end take the swim test at the start of each week.

No. The only exception is on Adventure Camp field trip days. See Camp Store Accounts for Camp Winnebago money policies.

Every so often, a lunch doesn’t make it from the car to camp. Camp Winnebago and Adventure Camp will have lunches available through the Summer Food Program for children who do not bring a lunch to camp.

We know that sometimes things just get lost. Please label all of your child’s belongings. The best way to prevent the loss of property is to leave it at home! There will be a designated Lost and Found at each camp location. Please check for your child’s items. Lost and found items are kept at the YMCA for two full weeks and then donated to charity. The YMCA is not responsible for camper possessions that are lost or stolen.
