What Parents Say About YMCA Camp Seymour
“My kids talk about the past summer sessions all year long while looking forward to the upcoming sessions- including the very short winter weekend. I don't even know where to start with the activities they do and how they have time- fishing, kayaking, hiking, sleeping under the stars, campfires, archery all rounded off with a pancake breakfast for the entire family upon pick up where they also have a showcase of a few things they worked on. See if you can qualify for financial aid during registration!” - Ellie

What Parents Are Saying About ReFabulous Summer Camp
“I absolutely LOVE this place! The owner is incredible! I've taken a few classes here, a sewing basics 101 and some make it togethers with my 3 year old. Kamuela is incredibly patient and creative. Both my daughter and I really enjoy going there and the projects we've completed through Refabulous hold places of honor in our house. Her sewing 101 class really built my confidence. And the lattes and hot cocoa are scrumptious! Can't recommend this enough!” - Elaine
