Resident Camps

Camp Wewa

YMCA Camp Wewa is a Summer Resident Camp and year-round Outdoor Education facility operated by the YMCA of Central Florida. Children and teens have a fully immersive opportunity to build new lifelong friendships, develop skills in the outdoors, and discover their sense of self. YMCA Camp Wewa provides a safe, exciting environment for participants to grow in Body, Mind and Spirit through our transformative approach to teaching athletic, camping, artistic and leadership skills for campers from ages 8–17.

Winter Camp Registration Deadline: December 27


RESIDENT CAMPS (OVERNIGHT CAMPS)

Four week-long sessions and two 2-week sessions beginning on Sundays at 1:30 pm and ending on Fridays at 2:00 pm for ages 8–14. YMCA Camp Wewa is all-inclusive—meals, snacks, activities, and specialized instructional staff are all covered with your camp dues.

Campers stay in age- and gender-appropriate cabins with a maximum of 14 campers, and a minimum of two full-time staff counselors.

In order to participate in camp activities, campers must have a recent Health History Form on file, which includes a current physical performed by a licensed physician within the last 12 months. Please download and complete our Health History Form prior to the start of your camper’s session.

COUNSELOR IN TRAINING (CIT)

A three-week training and mentoring program for campers ages 16–17 who are interested in pursuing a counselor position at YMCA Camp Wewa. CITs will spend their time in leadership-specific activities and will stay in younger-aged cabins learning from the best counselors at YMCA Camp Wewa. CIT participants receive 40 community service hours and will participate in a service project. Please note completion of CIT program does not guarantee a paid counselor position in the future.
