2018 Mankato Area Guide to Summer Camps

We are pleased to bring you the Mankato Area Guide to Summer Camps!

Sweet Summertime.  It will be here before we know it!  For kids, the anticipation can quickly turn to boredom.  What to do to fill those long summer days?  Summer Camp is a great option and Southern Minnesota is filled with fantastic summer camp options!  Our goal is to simplify the searching process with our comprehensive guide to Mankato Summer Camps presented by the Mankato Family YMCA.

Mankato Family YMCA

YMCA Summer Camps are fun-filled recreational and educational programs specially designed for youth of all ages, offering nature exploration, group games, sports & fitness activities, hands on S.T.E.A.M. activities, crafts, movies, songs, field trips and swimming all wrapped around individual weekly themes. Our philosophy is to ensure campers will be safe, have fun, make new friends, gain confidence and self assurance in a nurturing, supervised environment. Our camp staff strives to foster positive self-esteem and independence in each camper. They are dedicated, energetic, and enthusiastic about summer camp! Every staff member undergoes background checks and is certified in first aid/CPR, bully prevention and child abuse.

Camp Pillsbury

Camp Pillsbury provides a chance to fly on a trapeze, participate in sports, musical theater, gymnastics, dance, do magic tricks, go horseback riding, play instruments or go to the lakefront to learn to water ski or just have fun on the banana boat – all in the same day!  Camp Pillsbury, recently named “Coolest Summer Camp in Minnesota” is a fun, safe, unique summer camp that provides over 100 activities to campers ages 6-17.  Campers choose their activities daily and only participate in what interests them.  Dormitory sleeping quarters provide safe and comfortable accommodations and our professional chef at our onsite dining hall provides healthy, tasty meals.
