Ann Arbor YMCA Camp Al-Gon-Quian (AGQ), situated on beautiful Burt Lake, MI is home to over a thousand campers each summer. AGQ’s mission is to put our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility into action through facilities and programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

AGQ offers a traditional overnight camp experience for campers ages 8-16. Campers bunk in semi-rustic cabins with role model counselors who facilitate a transformative camp experience focused on youth development principles. Click here to see a typical daily schedule and some of the activities that work to develop social, emotional, and life skills. Whether it is for our four-day Mini Camp or for multiple sessions, we hope your camper returns home with some of the best memories possible, increased confidence and self-esteem, an appreciation for the out-of-doors and a summer experience unlike any other. If you have questions about our camp, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to meeting your camper on the shores of Burt Lake!

Sincerely, Katie Milne
Director of Camp Al-Gon-Quian
