YMCA Camp Glacier Hollow is a summer camp in Wisconsin that offers a variety of traditional Resident Overnight Camps, Day Camps and Adventure Trips for youth ages 7-17. We are dedicated to providing a safe, fun and small group environment, which develops the spirit, mind and body of each individual. Camp is a special place where youth and teens learn about the environment, develop positive values, make meaningful friendships, learn new skills and increase self-confidence. In our community of caring adults Y Camp Glacier Hollow summer camp helps kids grow and find themselves.
YMCA Camp Glacier Hollow offers youth an opportunity to develop an awareness and sensitivity to the environment. Using the outdoors as a living classroom, campers gain a better understanding of living in harmony with nature and wildlife.
Through “hands-on” activities and active involvement, campers will acquire the Knowledge, understanding, and skills necessary to become environmentally responsible people. Campers are given the chance to develop a sense of responsibility for themselves and the environment; make lifelong friends; and, best of all have lots of fun.
The blending of environmental education with traditional summer camp activities in the context of friendship and fun is what Glacier Hollow is all about.
Camp is nestled just 14 miles east of Stevens Point in beautiful Central Wisconsin on Lake Elaine. Outdoor recreation and environmental education / EE based programs are also available to school and youth groups May through September.
