Camp Foster YMCA

Dear Campers and Families,

For those of you that are looking for your very first camp experience or you’re a seasoned “camp veteran”, Camp Foster is continuing our pursuit of being an awesome camp for the number one person here…the Campers.

Our staff team researches, hires, and trains the highest quality staff to help each child discover a world of outdoor recreation. As we have for generations, and will continue to; we believe that offering the skills of relationship building is one of the most important a child can have. We know that bullying is a very serious topic right now, and our team of professionals have worked hard to create an atmosphere where the kids are free to be themselves, make friends, and celebrate everything about them that makes them shine.

So, whether you are excited to come to camp to see old friends, or meet brand new ones, we are here to help your child shine and make that happen.

See you in Okoboji!

Josh Carr, Executive Director
