A re-vamped camp store!

We are excited to announce the launch of our re-vamped Camp Wood Store! Our mission is to provide a choice of merchandise and snacks for campers and families to purchase while staying with us. We want to support children in learning to manage funds and make positive choices when purchasing items.

Campers will be able to visit the store at several times during the day. The store will typically be open before lunch (Brunch Crunch) and before dinner (Grub Club). Also, campers may visit the store with their cabin groups during the afternoon activity period.

Our snack choices are in line with the YMCA mission of healthy living. Typical choices are: 100% juice boxes, string cheese, pretzels, fruit snacks, and goldfish crackers. We also want to offer some special treats so most afternoons will have an additional offering such as popcorn or sno-cones. Snack prices vary from $0.25 to $1.00. We suggest $5-$15 for the week for snacks.

Our merchandise includes Camp Wood YMCA swag such as shirts, sweatshirts, Nalgene water bottles and pennants. We also carry an assortment of items useful to have at camp such as flashlights, toothbrushes, journals, stuffed animals, hacky sacks and sunglasses. Most merchandise ranges from $3.00-$10.00. Camp shirts and sweatshirts range in price from $15-$30.  If you would like your child to purchase merchandise while they are here, we suggest placing $15-$30 on your child’s account.

At check in on Sunday you may place funds on your camper’s account. Money not spent will not be returned but will be rolled over to future 2017 weeks. Any unspent funds at the end of the summer will be donated to our scholarship account, which helps kids attend camp who could otherwise not afford to go. The camp store will be open during check out on so you may use the remaining funds on your child’s account at that point. Campers may not carry cash with them while at camp.

If you have questions about the camp store, please feel free to contact us at (620) 273-8641 or summer@campwood.org.
