Hayo-Went-Ha Camps

Day Camp for Boys and Girls

Camp Description


YMCA Hayo-Went-Ha Sparks Day Camp, located on Torch Lake in Central Lake, MI, creates great memories and traditions for boys and girls ages 5 -10 years old!

Our regular Day Camp hours are 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.


Boys and girls (ages 5-10) will utilize many areas of Hayo-Went-Ha’s 640 acres of virtually undisturbed forest and 1.5 miles of shoreline on beautiful Torch Lake. The Dow Building serves as Day Camp’s home base, with playing fields and trails accessible right outside. Campers will be busy playing group games, hiking, exploring nature, singing, and doing crafts. Fridays are special theme days that include a cookout lunch for parents.


We intentionally keep our staff to camper ratios at a maximum of eight campers to one staff. The staff works diligently to see that camper safety and success is ensured. Our staff enjoys working with young children. As a result, many day campers return for two, three, and even four years!


In all activities we do at Day Camp, we follow the YMCA core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. We teach campers the virtues of honesty in one’s dealings with all people, respect for others, and an understanding of one’s self within the framework of a world that is greater than us all.
