Want to take the family camping? Check this out
by Nancy Grindle Correspondent · May 18th, 2017

YMCA Camp Wapsie has a tradition of offering family camping over the weekend of Memorial Day. The food and fun will be provided for your family, and friends may even want to stop by to visit you or maybe even stay overnight at the same time you do.

You can check in on Saturday, May 27, at 2 p.m. Checkout will be on Monday, May 29, at 1 p.m.

Meals and program costs per person range from $44 down to free for little kids. Families can rent a four-bed area or a six-bunk cabin. Both have shared bathrooms. There is a 12-bed cabin for rent and more than one family can share it.

You will be able to relax and have fun and not have to face cooking, dishes and cleaning.

Among the activities will be canoeing, archery, swimming, a campfire, and a number of arts and crafts. There will also be some family fun times such as bingo and possibly a carnival.

Camp Wapsie is just north of Central City and is a YMCA facility with trained staff and first aid personnel.

You can get a registration form online. While browsing online regarding family camping, take a look at the other activities offered at Camp Wapsie over the summer. You may find that you want to participate more than once this year!
