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

With 100 years of camping experience, Superior YMCA camps are committed to nurturing the potential of every child by fostering achievement, relationships, and belonging through our programs. We support children in 1. Discovering skills to help them realize their accomplishments, passions, talents, and potential. 2. Building friendships to demonstrate the role positive relationships play in the well-being of a child. 3. Developing a sense of belonging where kids feel safe, welcome, and can express their individuality.

Each summer the Y offers a 10-12 week day camp program out at beautiful Lake Nebagamon for youth who completed Kindergarten -5th grade

What a day is like

The Superior YMCA is partnering with the Superior School District this summer to offer an outdoor experience that provides new and exciting opportunities. The Superior Y Camp at Lake Nebagamon is a perfect setting for field trips offering large open play space, a beautiful waterfront, and nature at its finest. 

These field trips are for youth who have completed Kindergarten to grade 5. The day begins when kids step on the bus at Northern Lights Elementary School at 8:30 am and head out to camp. Spending lots of time outdoors, kids have access to the best summer has to offer. Each day is filled with activities such as swimming, group games, literacy activities, hiking, canoeing/kayaking*, low ropes course, hammock village, arts and crafts and archery*.  *Must be 7 years old or older due to licensing regulations. 

The day ends when the bus returns to Northern Lights Elementary at 4:00 pm. Before and after extended care is available from 7:00-8:15am and 4:00-5:30pm.
