What’s a Typical Day at Kum-Ba-Yah?

Campers arrive each morning to counselors waiting to greet them.

We open each day singing camp songs, and pursue a range of activities designed as physical and mental challenges. Campers cook their own lunches over a campfire they build together. Children 9 and older participate in special team-building and leadership training programs. At the close of each day, campers join in a friendship circle, sing and head home tired, happy, and full of good memories.
