BELONG        

Camp is a place where we teach kids about acceptance and tolerance. We co-exist with other campers, share stories, and life lessons and learn to appreciate others for who they are. Camp Seymour is a place where kids can feel as if they belong.

UNPLUG

Kids lives are filled with distractions of video games, texting, TV, and screen-time. An experience at Camp Seymour gives kids the, much needed, chance to disconnect from the technological world and re-learn how to connect face-to-face. We involve children in active, physical outdoor activities.

CONNECT

We teach kids how to make friends and provide positive staff role models to help them be successful at camp and connect with others. The "cabin group" and "unit" structure, gives kids a much-needed identity at camp, which helps them to fit in. Camp Seymour staff work extremely hard to help kids connect with new friends and form positive bonds with their leaders and the camp leadership.

Please, don't hesitate to give us a call at 253-884-3392 or drop our camp director an e-mail at lmclain@ymcapkc.org and we can help you find the perfect program for your child.

Prices range from $399 - $1,349.
