AGQ Winter Leadership Camp (12/27-12/30) – Click Here to Register

For campers ages 14-16 (all genders welcome). Come experience the magic of camp in the Winter! We will leave Friday morning (December 27) and return on Monday afternoon (December 30). All pick-ups and drop-offs occur at the Ann Arbor YMCA. Transportation will be provided to and from camp. This is a great opportunity for our older campers to hone their leadership skills in a smaller group setting. All campers and staff stay in the main lodge during their time at camp. Bunk beds are available and rooms will be separated by gender.

Ann Arbor YMCA Camp Al-Gon-Quian (AGQ), situated on beautiful Burt Lake, MI is home to 1300 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
