Every day is a Special Adventure!

Georgia Mountains YMCA offers Specialty Camp that is designed to bring a week of creative fun to the children. Each week has a different theme or activity and is focused on that particular activity throughout the week. The children will still enjoy the fun elements of camp, like swimming and playing with their friends while focusing on something they really enjoy. Each camp has a minimum number of participants required for the camp to be offered.
