1-Week Camps (Ages 7-13)

Warner-Tully’s traditional overnight summer camping season is divided into five one-week sessions, open to both boys and girls, ages 7-13.

Each camper becomes part of a close-knit cabin group, with 8-10 campers and two well-trained counselors. Weeklong sessions open on Sunday afternoon and close the following Saturday morning after breakfast.

The normal daily routine includes three great-tasting meals in our air-conditioned dining hall, a morning and evening devotional, skill activities such as canoeing and archery, free swims, campwide activities like the Mud Slide, and special events like the Warner-Tully Magic Campfire.

Mini Camps (Ages 6-10)

Mini-Camps were started over a decade ago for first-time campers or for children who may not quite be ready for a full week at Warner-Tully. As jam-packed versions of the regular weekly sessions, Mini-Camps offer a gradual “break-in” experience to camping. Our dedicated staff, exciting and safe programs, and modern facilities form the foundation for our YMCA Mini-Camp. We know the decision to attend camp for the first time can be difficult, so we go the “extra mile” to insure your child’s enjoyment of the program. Coupled with Warner-Tully’s rich tradition of camp service to young people since 1960, Y Mini-Camp is sure to be a special event for your child. Enrollment is limited, so register early. Please contact the YMCA at 601-638-1071 if you have any questions.

Leadership Opportunities

For our older kids, we do have another great opportunity for you as a Leader-In-Training (14 and 15) or a Counselor-In-Training (16). You’ll be able to come to camp and enjoy all your favorite games, songs, food, and people, and you’ll also get a few more responsibilities, like helping walk campers around and working with staff members to understand what being a counselor is like. If you’re interested, fill out an application and send it in! There are only a few catches. LITs pay the same amount as regular campers (CITs are free), but there is a limited number of LITs/CITs we can take each session. The deadline to apply is April 1. You will be notified by e-mail to let you know which sessions you have been selected to serve. A registration form will be sent to you; on-line registration is not available for LITs/CITs: We’ll let you know as soon as possible. Priority is given to those with a lifeguard certification; 15 year olds who are lifeguard certified are eligible to be CITs.
