Summer Family Camp at YMCA Hayo-Went-Ha Camps

For many years YMCA Camp Hayo-Went-Ha has been offering family camp programs on the shores of Torch Lake, recognized as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Our Family Camp will offer programs that incorporate fun, adventure, and a relaxed atmosphere all for a very economical cost.
