Catch the Magic

With all the uncertainty out there right now, we want to remind you that we’re family. We often use the phrase “catch the magic,” when we talk about camp, and we know our campers and camper families could use some camp magic now more than ever. We’re channeling the magic of camp into activities, information, and more for you to use at home, and we hope it brings you good vibes and brightens your day. Check this page often, as we will be continually adding information and resources.

Additionally, we ask that our campers stay home to come home.

Information and Resources

Summer 2020 at Immokalee

YMCA Camp Immokalee currently plans on running summer 2020 as planned. Safety is our number one priority, and we’ll continue monitoring CDC, American Camp Association, Y-USA, and other sources to ensure our policies and procedures are aligned to keep campers are safe as possible. Additionally, we’ll watch the decisions of local school districts to see if our schedule needs to be modified. We will continue to update our website and send out email communication as we learn more.
