Superior Douglas County Family YMCA


Exciting, safe community for young people to explore the outdoors, build self-esteem, develop interpersonal skills and make lasting friendships and memories

Each summer the Y offers a 10-12 week day camp program out at beautiful Lake Nebagamon for youth in grades K-6th.

What a day is like

The outdoors provides children with great opportunities to experience new and exciting things. Lake Nebagamon is a perfect setting for a Day Camp for youth in grades K-6 (must have completed Kindergarten prior to the start of camp). The day begins when campers step on the bus at 8:30 a.m. at the YMCA and head out to camp. Spending as much time in the outdoors kids have great access to the best summer has to offer. Children spend their busy day in a variety of structured and non-structured activities and the day ends when the bus returns at 4 p.m.

Each day is filled with fun activities such as:
  • *Archery
  • Field Trips
  • Group Games
  • Swimming
  • Hiking
  • *Canoeing
  • Cook-Out
  • Nature Hikes
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Smaller Group Activities and theme fun!

*Must be 7 Years or older due to licensing regulations


Day camp staff is the heart of the program and their leadership is vital to your child’s positive day camp experience. Counselors share a common bond in the desire to help campers reach their full potential and love of the outdoors.

Our Day Camp Director is Adam Martin. This is his fourth year at camp. If you have any questions, feel free to contact him via email at or you can call the Y at 715-392-5611.
