Family Camp Weekends

Escape from your hectic family routine to the shores of Cedar Lake at Camp Hazen YMCA.  Take the time you deserve to relax and be together with your family.  Choose your own adventure, whether it's a hike through the forest, kayaking on the lake or an exciting and challenging adventure climbing our Alpine Tower, Climbing Wall or High Ropes Course. Some things you'll want to do together with your family, but there are still opportunities for your own personal quiet time while the kids are busy with our experienced and energetic Hazen Staff.

Accommodations for Family Camp

Your family will be assigned your very own cabin during your stay.  You will stay in our clean and comfortable cabins with 10 beds (bunk style) and electricity.  Most have bathrooms in them, with a nearby shower house.  A limited number of cabins that include complete bathrooms are available.  Assignments are made as deposits are received.

Mother and Daughter Weekend

Mother and Daughter Weekend is designed to help foster a lifetime of understanding and companionship and to strengthen the relationship between children and parents.  Our camp offers parents an opportunity to spend time together with their children away from daily distractions and schedules.  Mother and Daughter Weekend at Camp Hazen YMCA will conclude on Sunday with a luncheon and a traditional English Tea Party.

Father and Son Weekend

Here's the best way to introduce your son to camp and help your young man feel good about his future experiences.  Spend some quality time participating in a huge variety of activities designed to create a special bond with memories you can reflect on for years to come.

Accommodations for Parent-Child Programs

All program participants will be housed in our dormitory-style winterized lodges with other parents and children.  Lodges are equipped with electricity, bathrooms and showers.

Why Parent-Child Programs

Spending time together as a family has immediate rewards but the long-term gains are even more significant.  Not only will you build a solid foundation for memories that will last a lifetime, but you'll also be helping to build and develop a set of skills and patterns that your children will carry with them into adolescence and adulthood.

Join is for a special, all women’s program, offering new challenges, relaxation and a chance to meet other women and strengthen existing friendships.
