Camp Koda now 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.

Camp Program – Our day camp is packed each day with activities that will keep minds sharp and bodies moving. Campers arrive at the YMCA between 8:45am and 9:00am and should be picked up at 4:30pm. Your child’s camp adventure begins at 9:00am each day. Extended care is available from 7:30am to 8:45am and 4:45pm to 6:00pm. (The fee for extended care is $2.00 per child, per time slot – am or pm).

Camp Activities – Each day will be based on the theme for the week, but include lots of adventure! Activities like swimming, crafts, nature walks, field trips, science experiments, culture diversity exploration, sports, music and much more. One day each week campers also get to attend our very own YMCA Camp Cormorant on Big Cormorant Lake, MN! In addition, campers will get to go on other field trips related to their theme each week. There they get the full camp experience and even more adventure like horseback riding, water fun, ropes and climbing courses and more. 

Camp Staff – The Y knows kids and we choose our staff  based on maturity, sensitivity, and proven abilities in relating to young children. They are excellent role models and care about children. The staff is selected to teach the core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and health.

Camp Scholarships – There are a variety of financial assistance programs available to campers. The YMCA provides scholarships to families who are in need. Call Dee at 701.364.4153 for more information.

This has been a camper-favorite week!

Sports Galore

Healthy Cooking
Calling all chefs and foodies! If your camper loves to cook and wants to learn more about healthy cooking and eating, this is the week for them! We will be learning how to make awesome new recipes, taste testing healthy food, hearing from a nutritionist about how food choices can help create a fun and healthy lifestyle, and so much more!

Wacky Science

During this session, participants will learn all about different musical instruments and styles! Campers will be able to create their own instruments and take field trips to local music schools and concert halls. Your camper will also get to learn about drama, prepare a skit, and visit area theaters to see what it’s like to be up on stage!

Super Heroes
Everyone knows their favorite comic book super hero, but this week campers will have the chance to learn about the super heroes all around us! These heroes include police officers, firemen, military personnel and others! We will travel to where these super heroes work to see what it’s like to do their “super” job. Come join us for a super time!

Space is the Place
This week, campers will learn all about the cosmos! We will explore the planets & the solar system and learn about astronauts, all while having fun! If your camper is interested in all the galaxy has to offer, Space is the Place is the perfect camp choice!

Is your camper an aspiring artist? Then Art week at Camp Koda is the perfect fit! Campers will learn about famous artists and art history, then take that inspiration to create their own original art projects! Guest artists will be visiting all week long, and campers will get the chance to work with clay, canvas and more as they discover their creativity!
