STRIDE Residential Camp

STRIDE: Success Teamwork Respect Inspiration Determination Excellence 

STRIDE is a fun fitness and character development program for young boys. Throughout the program, the focus is on doing one’s personal best, not competing with each other. Boys have the chance to share their thoughts and opinions in various life topics such as good sportsmanship, goal setting, bullying and making healthy choices. Volunteer coaches will guide and mentor the boys through an uplifting curriculum while the boys work together in training for a 2 mile fun run.  Each day campers will have the opportunity to enjoy all that Camp Kirkwood has to offer including ropes course, canoeing, archery, swimming etc.

Financial Assistance

At the Y, we think summer fun, new friends and positive role models should be available to every child. That's why we provide scholarships to families who need help making camp a reality. If your family needs a little help, scholarships are available at our Membership Desk at the Express Y and are kept completely confidential. Funds are made possible because of the generous donations made through our Annual Giving Campaign. You can send a child to camp by making a tax-deductible gift online to the Y's Annual Giving Campaign.
