Each summer, Youth Assistance provides an opportunity for children entering the third grade through the 8th grade to attend camp overnight for five days. Teachers, counselors, administrators, Youth Assistance staff, and parents refer children for the camp experience.

Youth Assistance pays for the majority of the camp cost. Families are asked to pay a small deposit, however, no child will be turned away due to an inability to pay.

The children are transported to and from Camp Michawana in a comfortable bus.  Camp Michawana is a non-denominational Christian camp in Hastings, Michigan. The children enjoy swimming, canoeing, skateboarding, crafts, songs and campfires.
