UnPlug at YMCA Camp Hanes

camphanes_IMG_2778At YMCA Camp Hanes, you get to “unplug” and enjoy all kinds of exciting things that you can’t experience at home. In the process, you’ll learn new skills and make new friends (and memories) that you’ll cherish forever. You can be yourself, while having a great time and building your self-confidence at your own pace. So why do so many kids come back to Camp Hanes every summer? Ask the campers, and they’ll tell you it’s because of the terrific experiences they enjoy. Ask the campers’ parents, and they’ll say that their child seems more confident. Or more motivated. Or more outgoing. The laughter and adventure and fellowship that thrive at YMCA Camp Hanes may last a short time each summer. But the memories – and the lessons – will last a lifetime. Visit Camp Hanes on April 19th from 1-4pm for the Open House.  Contact: 336-983-3131 or www.camphanes.org.
