Our youth programs are designed to help your child learn, grow, and stay fit. Whether it’s learning the backstroke in Swim School, doing relay races together in our Family Fit classes, or enjoying new songs and games at CampVandy, we have a program you and your child are sure to love! For teens we also offer leadership opportunities through our CampVandy W.I.L.D (Wilderness Immersion and Leadership Development) camp.
