Help Your Child Have The

Best Summer Ever!!

Are you ready for an adventure? Join us for our first ever Outdoor Summer Camp! Children will have different activities they can choose to participate in plus free time to enjoy cooling off in the pool, play on the playground equipment, and show their skills with group games. Can’t make it there to pick your child up right away, no worries, each child will get a wrist band that allows them admittance to both Y’s for the rest of the day.

What are the True Benefits of
Summer Camp?

Attending a camp where no electronic devices are allowed gives children the chance to get out and be active, while meeting new people and making new friends. It is a way to introduce the outdoors and wildlife and hopefully fuel an interest that keeps growing. Children at Camp Eigenberg will learn skills that will last a lifetime such as fishing, archery, and kayaking in a safe environment. Our dedicated group of staff and volunteers have a true love for the outdoors that they want to share with youth in and around Hastings.

Children will get the chance to try their skills with bows and arrows and BB Guns. Shooting instruction will be
