Archery is one of the most self-challenging and rewarding activities here at AYF Camp. Archery combines physical and mental focus, and especially goal-setting skills. Archery is a fun, safe and easy activity for our campers.
Our climbing wall is one of the best activities for the campers at AYF Camp. It develops endurance, strength, flexibility, balance and physical focus. Campers also learn the importance of teamwork and motivation with encouragement to get to the top of the wall & ring the bell.
Our newly resurfaced basketball court allows campers to play basketball in the beautiful outdoors all while enjoying the fresh air. Whether it’s a game of Horse or a round robin tournament, campers of all ages can enjoy some fun exercise and challenging games.

All the campers that attend AYF Camp have an opportunity to go canoeing at our local Jackson Lake. Located near AYF Camp this hike to the lake gives campers the opportunity to work together all while going out on the water to relax and enjoy nature. Safety is our campers’ top priority as all campers are required to wear a life jacket.
The biggest Red, Blue, Orange competition during the week is Song Competition. Campers prepare for days in their color teams to sing songs and perform in front of the entire camp all while being judged. The campers work together to teach and help each other learn and memorize the songs. This teamwork motivates all the campers and teaches campers that positivity is key.
