"I wanted to thank YMCA Camp Kresge for the recent week my children enjoyed. Counselors, food service, maintenance and program directors were kind and enthusiastic. Witnessing children arrive emotionally burdened with daily life blossom into children that are care-free even for a just a week or two is such a gift to them. Please share with all the staff that their effort each day makes such a difference in the lives of the youth at camp." ~ Kim S.
