We are here to welcome each kid for who they are and to help them grow mentally, physically and emotionally.

Our Y Navigator program is based on the Y’s Core Values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. We are here to help kids understand what it means to live with character in their life and how to do so through relationship-building games, teamwork challenges, and camper-to-camper recognition.

From deployments to new schools, military children face unique challenges most youth their age never experience. Their ability to adapt must be applauded, their courage must be recognized and their hard work must be celebrated.

It is estimated that aver 15,000 children in Minnesota have been affected by a parent’s deployment and that number continues to grow. We are encouraging our community to join together and honor our military youth for their sacrifices, for their courage, and for the important contribution they make to the strength of the military family.
