YMCA Camp Winnebago

Since the 1960's, YMCA Camp Winnebago has been a place where youth of all ages can develop leadership and life skills in programs that emphasize the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith. Camp Winnebago operates year-round on over 160 acres of wilderness and features three beautiful log lodges, three pavilions, a climbing tower, high ropes course, ponds, marsh, woodlands, streams, fields, prairies, a natural spring, and access points to the Rock River. Camp Winnebago is home to Summer Day Camps, Youth Education Programs, and Team Building & Adventure Course Programs. One mile north of Rockford and minutes away from downtown, Camp Winnebago is truly a hidden Rockford treasure with much to offer!

2020 Summer Camp Update

May is usually one our favorite and busiest months - ordering tons of supplies, training awesome staff, cleaning up trails, setting up the high ropes course, all in happy anticipation of welcoming campers and having the Best Summer Ever!

The stay-at-home order extension through May, though, means we cannot work on those preparations right now. With that, we will need to delay the start of summer camp until at least July 6th, 2020. This is for all Camp Winnebago and Adventure Camps locations.

For those already registered, we will be working on cancelling and refunding deposits for all camp weeks between 5/22-7/3. Please allow us 2 weeks to work through all registrations and refunds.

Registration is now closed; we will not be able to accept any new registrations. We will reevaluate as things progress and will reopen registration if we know that we can safely and responsibly do so.
