Special Days Family Camp Retreat

Join us at YMCA Camp Copneconic (just south of Flint) on Saturday March 19 (10 am check in) – Sunday, March 20, 2022 (10 am check out) for our spring family camp retreat.

While the program will look different as a result of the ongoing pandemic we are committed to providing a camp experience for your family.  We’ll continue our tradition of dancing, playing games and arts and crafts just to name a few.  But the best part of camp is having the chance to renew old friendships and create new ones.  

For you parents it’s an opportunity to see some of the camp magic first hand as this year we are excited to be able to offer our program in a family camp format with you attending along with your children.  If you are unable to attend with your children we don’t want them to miss out on the fun and we will be able to provide supervision to a limited number of campers by our volunteers.

Families can REGISTER TODAY
