2023 SUMMER DATES & THEMES

Session 1: May 28 – June 3 – Agents of Chaos

Heroes have always stolen the show, now it’s time for the greatest villains to get their time in the spotlight. Characters such as Cruella, Darth Vader, Thanos and many others will be recruiting cabins to join their teams through a variety of fun competitions. Come to Immokalee’s dark side before our villains leave for the next stop on their recruitment tour!

Session 2: June 4-10 – Adventures of the Deep

Start of the summer as the seas are calling! Cabins will act as crews this week deciphering treasure maps, sailing Lake Brooklyn, and battling other pirate ships to amass the largest fortune of them all.  SAILORS BEWARE: More than treasure awaits in the depths of Lake Brooklyn.

Session 3: June 11-17 – Avatar’s World of Pandora

Adventure into Pandora’s newest discovered region, The Immokalee Sleeping Forest. Campers will break into tribes and attempt to use their unique strengths to bring light back to this dormant glowing forest. This week will feature: Face & body paint, an “enchanted forest”, glowing campfires, and a glow dance party!

Session 4: June 18-24 – Color Wars I (10th Anniversary)

The week that put YMCA Camp Immokalee on the map returns for its 10th summer! For this 10 year Anniversary, there will be no holding back. We expect spirit like no other this summer! Sign up if you plan to BRING IT for Summer 2023.

Session 5: June 25 – July 1 – Once Upon a Time in the Swamp

You heard it right! A Shrek themed week with fairy tale creatures, dragons, ogres, and the best part? You guessed it, in the mornin’, we’re making WAFFLES!

Session 6: July 2-8 – Wizarding World of Immokalee

There is no week that embodies Immokalee’s “catch the magic” motto more than Harry Potter week.  Campers can expect butter-beer, Quidditch, a tri-wizard tournament, and of course, loads of magic!

Session 7: July 9-15 – Renaissance Week

For this special week, YMCA Camp Immokalee will be a hub of cultural, artistic, and scientific appreciation as it transitions back to the time of the renaissance. Whether campers are working on theatrical plays, musical performances, scientific inventions, or vast works of art, everyone will be immersed in the world of Shakespeare, da Vinci, and Michelangelo.

Session 8: July 16-22 – Color Wars II (10th Anniversary)

This is your second opportunity for the week that put YMCA Camp Immokalee on the map.  The 10th annual Color Wars! Cabins will join together in color teams to face off and celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Color Wars.  With a series of fun, exciting, and high-stakes competition, which color will come out victorious?

Session 9: July 23-29 – Desert Oasis

Across the dunes of the Immokalee Desert, campers will find hidden relics, archeological treasure, and a mystery or two. Their goal, you ask? To break the curse of Immokalee and restore it to the lush oasis it once was.

Session 10: July 30 – August 5 – Olympics Week

With the much anticipated return of international staff to YMCA Camp Immokalee, we have been selected as the host facility for the 2023 Immokalee Olympic Games! Cabins will select a country to represent and will compete throughout the week to see who finishes with the most medals!
