We get it. Sending your child away can cause some anxiety, especially if it is their first time. Know that we take what we do very seriously. We are youth development professionals and your child's safety is our top priority. Camp staff are carefully screened during a character-based hiring process and are selected for their skills and concern for the well-being of children. Professional program staff work directly with counselors to provide guidance and support.
All staff are certified in first aid and CPR and have been screened through the highest standards of child safety practices, including background checks. The Sherman Lake YMCA is accredited by the American Camp Association.
