Camp Testimonies:“I wanted to thank YMCA Camp Kresge for the recent week my children enjoyed. Counselors, food service, maintenance and program directors were kind and enthusiastic. Witnessing children arrive emotionally burdened with daily life blossom into children that are care-free even for just a week or two is such a gift to them. Please share with all the staff that their effort each day makes such a difference in the lives of the youth at camp.” ~Kim S. “Both of my kids are having such a great time every summer. We plan to return again next year.” ~ Thanh Thuy N. “My daughter loves camp and had made lots of good friends!” ~Jill F. “I couldn’t believe the difference in my son from last summer. He has never been kept busy in any other summer camp resulting in him acting up. He is very active and really enjoyed going to camp everyday. I am amazed and will recommend the program to anyone.” ~Dorothy L. “My son has attended camp for four years. This is my daughter’s sixth year. I send them because I believe they need the structure and consistency Camp Kresge has to offer. A staff who wants everyone to achieve their goals and have a positive experience is the reason my children keep coming back to Camp Kresge and will continue to come in the future…” ~Tracie C. “My son absolutely loves camp and looks forward to returning…He loves getting to spend the summer outside with other kids and experiencing so many different activities and learning along the way.” ~ Janet W.
