Each summer, Youth Assistance provides an opportunity for middle school-aged children to attend camp overnight for five days. Teachers, counselors, administrators, and Youth Assistance staff 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 on a comfortable bus. Camp Michawana is a non-denominational Christian camp in Hastings, Michigan. The children enjoy swimming, canoeing, skateboarding, crafts, songs, and campfires.
