Why Summer Camp Matters

Check out this blog by Alumnus Kizzy Marco! “I wrote a blog about the importance of summer camp for the hospital that I work with. It is largely based on my PLYC experience! Just thought I’d share…” http://www.checkupnewsroom.com/camp-meetin/...

Phantom Lake YMCA Camp Launches New Brand & Website

MUKWONAGO, Wis. — March 21, 2014 — Competition for hearts, minds, finite family time and resources among U.S. residential summer camps is intense. Today’s launch of a new brand and website (www.phantomlakeymca.org) is the first step in clearly differentiating itself as a place where families, volunteers and donors will invest time, effort and treasure. “As a volunteer-led organization, we depend on our board of directors, alumni and families to perpetuate camp for future generations of children,” CEO Jeff Spang says. “Most would agree camp is a special place, but putting 118 years of history into a compelling story now gives us a brand narrative we can take to the world.” Spang says the new brand focuses on Phantom Lake YMCA Camp being a nurturing environment unknown to most children.

Frankly, it’s why 90 percent of our counselors return year after year. And, it’s why competition is stiff for our counselor positions every year. Our counselors want younger kids to experience camp just like they did.” “We view Phantom Lake YMCA Camp as the most accepting place a child can experience, other than being at home with family,” Spang says. “Where summer becomes a foundation for life—where values...
