What are the Mini-Camps?

Mini-Camp was started over a decade ago for the first-time campers or for those children who may not quite be ready for a full week. As jam-packed versions of the regular weekly sessions, both Mini-Camps offer a gradual “break-in” experience to camping. Our dedicated staff, exciting and safe programs, and modern facilities with newly renovated, air-conditioned cabins, form the foundation for our YMCA Mini-Camps. 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. Enrollement is limited, so register early. Please contact the YMCA at 601-638-1071 if you have any questions.

  • Adventure hiking
  • Archery
  • Fishing (bring your own gear)
  • Campfire sing-alongs
  • Field day
  • Daily Devotions
  • Magic Campfire
  • Arts and Crafts
