For children who are not yet pursuing higher education, we provide the opportunity to attend camp. (Fund requests cannot exceed $3,000 per child)
We will always send children to an American Camp Association (ACA) accredited camp. To date, we have provided four life changing camp experiences.
We have sent kids to the following two camps so far:
- YMCA Camp Hayo-Went-Ha for boys (Central Lake)
- YMCA Camp Arbutus Hayo-Went-Ha for girls (Traverse City).
These camps pride themselves on the following main benefits:
- Single Gender
- Extended Trips
- International Staff
- Kids have no access to electronics including Cell Phones, Video Games, Internet and Television
Hayo Went Ha’s Purpose: To provide young people with the skills and experiences to become healthy, caring, and productive adults and to provide programs that strengthen the family
Hayo Went Ha’s Vision: To be a leader in providing transformational program experiences that will increase each individual’s capacity to be a contributing member of society
