Description
The Stevens Point Area YMCA offers a variety of Resident Camp, Day Camp and Teen Adventure Trip programs held at Glacier Hollow in Nelsonville, WI. We offer youth a safe environment in which positive values, personal growth, lifelong friendships, environmental awareness, and outrageous fun are key elements. Join us this summer for an experience that lasts a lifetime!

Adventure Trip participants can safely go beyond their backyard and experience the wilderness adventure of a lifetime! Participants will become students of the wilderness, addressing YMCA values, developing appreciation and respect for the environment, learning specific outdoor skills, improving teamwork and leadership skills, building self-confidence, creating friendships and having an outrageous time. All expeditions are thoroughly planned and led by experienced staff with advanced safety certifications. Experience is not necessary on most trips. Register early, trips are limited in size and fill quickly. Typical Teen Trip arrival is at 1:30pm on the first day and pick-up is at 7:00pm on the last day.
