We are all in this together.

We are all feeling the heaviness of the unknown that has been created with our current pandemic. Yet, we are all in this together. All of us are having to be creative problem solvers for ourselves and others. Being able to solve some problems, learn from the ones we get wrong, and acknowledge the moments of kindness and beauty within each day, this is how we grow and become more resilient.

Like you, Camp Pepin is working to make the best decisions for our community as we navigate the many unknowns in our world and local community today.

What we know

Camp Pepin is a beautiful space for families and individuals to come out and enjoy and restore. We were able to manage that safely in 2020 when we cancelled the summer resident camp season, and offered socially distanced family and cohort group rentals, which we are doing now through the spring of 2021.

Camp Pepin is an adventure space where children can safely explore and grow as they try new things while under the care of supportive counselors and leaders. We need to be able to do this in a safe way with our staff and your children as well as our financial resources.

Making Decisions

The Camp Pepin Advisory Board and the Red Wing YMCA Board are working with the YMCA Camp Pepin team to make the healthiest decision for children, families and the success of camp into the future. With the input of Y-USA’s Camp Cabinet and the American Camping Associations professional recommendations, we will make a decision on what the 2021 Summer Camp Season will look like.
