The YMCA Rags and Leathers Program is centered on personal growth. Through goal setting, commitment, and positive values, campers learn to assess their strengths as well as areas in their personal lives needing improvement, usually with a focus on behavior or spiritual growth. This is an optional program for campers wanting to dedicate themselves to continued self-improvement.
Campers are organized into cabin groups by age. We do our best to accommodate cabin requests, but requests must be made on the online application. Please do not call or email in your request. All cabin requests must be made 30 days prior to your camper’s session. After that time, no changes are allowed. Cabin requests must be reciprocal. For example, both campers have to request each other on their form for this to be honored.
Food is fuel out at camp! Therefore, camp menus are carefully selected to provide a balanced diet. From chicken and waffles to meatloaf and mashed potatoes we do everything in our power to make sure that your camper leaves every meal with a full belly that will keep them powered for the next activity. If your camper is not a fan of the menu for a certain meal, never fear! The Camp Grady Spruce dining hall is fully stocked with fresh fruit, a salad bar, and a sun butter and jelly sandwich station at all meals. More of a cereal person for breakfast? We have you covered there too; there is a cereal bar provided every morning!
