We will treat your children like our family.

Your child’s health and wellness is our number one concern. To that end, the Health and Wellness Center opened Summer 2014 to provide the most up-to-date and comprehensive care available to our campers. And although it does not happen often, bumps and bruises do happen at camp. In case of more serious injuries our camp is given priority status at local Hurley Children’s Hospital to make sure your children get prompt, professional care.

COVID-19 SAFETY

Youth and families can feel comfortable knowing that they can still have summer fun while in a safe environment. Summer Camp safety protocols are developed following recommendations from the Genesee County Health Department, the State of Michigan DHHS, Michigan Camp Licensing, the YMCA of the USA, and The American Camping Association. Campers will be placed in smaller groups that will remain appropriately separated from other camper groups. Additional protocols will include health and temperature screenings, physical distancing, mask wearing, and increased cleaning and sanitation of common areas and shared equipment. Program changes have been made to accommodate these, including the changes to activities that bring multiple groups of campers together (camper’s choice, free swim). We have moved to grab-and-go, rather than buffet-style meals to create socially distanced mealtimes. While campers will be physically distanced, they’ll remain socially connected through intentional programming.

Health and Wellness Center

Camp Copneconic is a year-round operation but its prime season is during the summer months when we host three basic but individual camp operations. On a seasonal average, camp hosts 2000 children for day camps, 1200 children for the overnight camps and 1200 children for partnership special needs camps. Because of this sheer volume, health issues must be a valid concern. Camp has address this concern with the addition of the new two level 11,580 square foot health and wellness center.

The main level of the facility is the treatment area and has 7,369 sq. feet. And the lower level is for medical staff lodging and has 4,199 sq. ft.  The center is more than just “brick-and-mortar”. It’s about the camp’s vision from the Board of Directors and the ultimate of community involvement. In simple terms, Camp Copneconic’s philosophy is for all campers to enjoy spending time at Camp. The Y staff and partners work together as a team in order to give the children the best possible camping experience including the special services they need.
