We are so excited to be offering 5 additional weeks of Family Camp programs to our community for Summer 2020. Our team has been working hard to develop plans for making Family Camp fun and safe as possible. In addition to reviewing industry best practices and closely following state and community regulations, we have consulted with other overnight camps in Michigan who are pursuing the same options. Having taken all this information into account, we have landed on a meaningful experience for our camp families!

After being confined to our homes and restricted in how we can gather in public spaces, the freedom to roam our 160 acres will be rejuvenating for our spirits, minds, and bodies. In addition to amazing experiences for your individual family, our camp community will come together for campfires and other Camp AGQ traditions while maintaining physical distancing. It may not be the summer we all hoped and envisioned, but it will allow us to maintain these important connections in our community while also giving us the opportunity to focus on ways we can improve the AGQ experience and facilities so we’re more ready than ever to welcome your children back for the 2021 season.

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
