KLYMIT HIGHLIGHTS: YMCA NORTHERN UTAH
The outdoors holds a special place in our hearts, and Klymit is proud to support and sponsor outdoor-minded nonprofits that help get people outside.
One of the programs that we are excited to highlight is YMCA of Northern Utah, which is the local branch of the YMCA that provides experiences and programs to strengthen the bodies and minds of community members.
The YMCA of Northern Utah has been offering it's services to the community for over 125 years, and works towards creating accessible programs to all members that wish to participate.
Currently, the YMCA of Northern Utah holds overnight outdoor trips to expand skills that are associated with camping, such as self-reliance, leadership, and an appreciation for nature. The two overnight programs include:
YMCA CAMP MILL HOLLOW
For over 60 years Mill Hollow has been THE environmental education center for Utah.YMCA Mill Hollow carries forward that rich tradition of summer camp: skits, songs, campfires, s’mores, arts and crafts, hiking, and so much more while campers connect with the natural sciences through outdoor education and exploration. During a 3 or 5 day avdenure, campers (7-16 year olds) will explore by turning Utah’s mountain landscape into an outdoor laboratory where campers have the opportunity to experience the natural sciences while getting a little muddy, making new friends, and having a whole lot of fun.
YMCA CAMP ROGER
At Camp Roger, kids develop outdoor skills in a structured small group setting. The goal here is for our campers will grow in independence, responsibility, and confidence as they are guided through the camp experience by hand-picked and trained staff. Each week's is theme is designed to captivate youth in new and exciting ways! In addition to the traditional camp, we offer specialty camps that allow campers to grow in in areas such a leadership development, horseback riding and extreme sports!
