Went there as a kid (1967 and 1968). Went there as a counselor (1981 and 1982). Loved it, always miss it, was glad when my son went there for College Town and with 2 other organizations.
A wonderful place to send kids! I love that they teach the four core values of the YMCA: honesty, caring, responsibility, and respect! Camp Sky Y truly grows good people!
My son is headed to his 5th year at summer camp. He's been going since he was 7. Best camp for first overnight experience because they have 2 counselors per cabin when they are young, structured schedule which helps especially if your child is coming alone. Lots of different fun activities including Gaga ball, canoeing, hiking and scrambling up rocks. My son even thinks being a 'hopper' (setting up and cleaning up from a meal) is fun. You know they are doing something right.
We went for family camp during Labor Day weekend. We had a blast - fun, safe, flexible activities for everyone of all ages.
So many memories of Sky-Y. Loved overnight camps under the stars and hiking to the water hole to swim for the day. Most of all I will remember the people who made it all possible for me to make new friends that I only knew for a week and though I don't remember their names I will always remember the great summers at Camp.
My Cousins and I go to Camp Sky Y every labor day for Family Camp and we LOVE every minute of it! Dave, the camp director, is so positive and accommodating that I am not sure how it is even possible to not have an amazing time. The staff are all like a big family and my family and I look forward to labor day at Sky Y because of all of them! The activities are a perk next to the atmosphere created by all of the staff and families!
We had the most amazing time as a family at Sky-Y Camp! Archery, climbing, swinging, hiking, eating, s'mores, and more. But best of all; family memories. Staff was very attentive. Extra helpful and concerned with us having a great time. The cabins were awesome. The food was great! Executive Director was there and made sure to spend time with each family and each family member from oldest to youngest. That kind of personal touch you don't often see. I can't say enough good things about Dave and his staff. My family and I will cherish this weekend for a long time to come. Thanks for the memories!
Amazing place - my kids absolutely adored the camp staff and love at the activities. I have recommended that camp to all of our family friends!
Best Summer camp in Arizona. It's been tradition in our family for 8 years now.
