YMCA camp Horseshoe named one of 25 Great Summer Camps

Camp Horseshoe offers four unique summer camps, including the popular Teen Entrepreneurship Summit where future MBAs can focus on economic education, civic leadership, and service. Full days are spent practicing the principles of private enterprise, learning the basics of starting a business, and identifying and building the character qualities necessary for success.

Campers are given plenty of time for recreational activities such as sports, music, hiking, campfires, a talent show, and much more.
