Activities and Exploration Day Camp
Camp Koda offers a new, fun, and unique experience each week that gives youth the opportunity to discover new interests, meet new friends, explore nature, enhance self-esteem, be physically active and create memories that last a lifetime. Kids will unplug from technology and engage in activities, in a safe and fun environment, that keep them moving and build social and independent skills. Our day camp is packed each day with activities that will keep minds sharp and bodies moving, like swimming, nature walks, field trips, science experiments, crafts, cultural exploration, sports, music and more! One day each week (excluding sessions 4 and 5) campers also get to attend our very own YMCA Camp Cormorant on Big Cormorant Lake, MN! There they get the full camp experience and even more adventures like horseback riding, water fun, ropes and climbing courses, and more.
