Camp's Description

For 80 years YMCA Camp Hanes has served as the premier resident camp for Northwest North Carolina. Camp Hanes is an ACA accredited camp with a traditional camp experience, adventure, teen, leadership, and day camp programs. Nestled at the base of our own Sauratown Mountain, Camp Hanes is located approximately 25 miles north of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. 

With the ABC's of camp, our goal is for each child to increase their own sense of accomplishment and belonging while they learn about the positive character traits of a hero. We do this through well-trained staff, carefully planned programs and facilities that are second to none in the southeast.
A child learns a sense of accomplishment through developing skills and trying new activities such as horseback riding, archery, swimming, the Blob, and zip lines. For many campers, being away from home for a week is an accomplishment itself. Our goal is to find the positive accomplishments and use them to build a strong foundation for the future.

A camper learns a sense of belonging by making friends and being a friend. Living in a cabin with 10 other children and two counselors gives each child a lesson in teamwork and relationship building. Everyone is valued at Camp Hanes. It is also imperative to know we all belong in God's Kingdom.
The character traits of a hero are taught in many ways. We use Jesus as our ultimate role model. Camp Hanes places an emphasis on learning from mistakes and always trying your hardest. It's not about failing- it's about getting up and improving. The character traits we specifically work on are Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, and Faith.

Camp Hanes has amazing facilities and even better staff. Camp Hanes is the best camp we've ever seen. Our son can't wait to start adventure camp next summer, and our daughter is excited about returning for her third summer. I can't say enough about what camp has done for our children. They have made friends and memories they'll never forget.
