Families escape the city to bask in the relaxing embrace of nature afforded by Camp Matawa, nestled in the Kettle Moraine State Forest. Over the course of a weekend, progenitors bond with their offspring over fun-filled activities that include family challenges, horseback riding, and canoeing. All getaways include meals, activities, and lodging in dorm-style cabins with indoor bathroom and shower facilities that are inspected every day for hook-handed hitchhikers.<p>
YMCA Camp Matawa is offered through the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee.
YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee
Dedicated to fostering social change by bringing the community together, the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee engages denizens through a host of activities, events, and educational programs. The organization's focus can be distilled into three parts, the first of which promotes the development of area youth via programs that help them realize their potential. Secondly, a commitment to bettering the community's health manifests itself in everything from group exercise classes to youth sports teams. Thirdly, YMCA volunteers take the reigns of social responsibility as they organize local initiatives that focus on empowering children with disabilities and promoting workplace wellness. Trained staffers also helm a variety of childcare programs that boost literacy and help develop skills, and the Y's Camps Matawa and Minikani grant city dwellers and runaway trees a much-needed reunion with nature.
