Ranger Program Philosophy 

In the Ranger Village, Campers have opportunity to sample a variety of fun and skill-building activities while gaining independence and confidence away from home. The Ranger Villages is designed to introduce campers to a variety of experiences in a safe environment. For one- week or two-week sessions, campers sample the fun that camp has to offer from canoeing and horse rides to archery and swimming. Our counselors are specially selected to work with this age group because of their understanding of Ranger’s abundant energy and need for support. Under their counselor’s leadership, Ranger’s are able to spend their days being active and connecting in the great outdoors. Campers focus on learning the meaning of I’m Third, our camp motto. Allowed to just be kids, the Ranger village is an amazing place to have fun every day while gaining social skills and finding new interests that prepare them for future years at camp. 

Cabin Arrangements

During their stay at camp, Ranger campers live in air conditioned lodges that include indoor restroom and shower facilities. There is room for 12 Campers and 2 counselors in each lodge unit. There is also a great room in each lodge that is large enough to gather around the fireplace and enjoy indoor activities when there is inclement weather. The Ranger lodges are the closest to the Health Center where medications are distributed. 

Meals and Nutrition 

The Ranger campers eat their meals in Malachi Dining Hall - a short walk from each lodge. Meals are served family style with a salad bar available at lunch and dinner. Special arrangements for children with special diets or allergies are accommodated. The Ranger campers are encouraged to drink water throughout the day and at each meal. They also enjoy a snack together at the end of their evening activities. 

Y-Camp Readers 

At the YMCA, we understand that reading thirty minutes a day over the summer months helps children to maintain their literacy levels. To support summer learning, Ranger campers spend 30 minutes each day reading or being read to during rest period, at chapel or at evening devotions. Age appropriate and camp themed books are available in each cabin or campers may bring their own books from home.
