Camp Oasis 2013

Just over two weeks ago we at camp had the amazing opportunity to host the CCFA (Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America) camp oasis of 2013. We had so much fun doing so many activities. From archery to climbing to the giant swing and the water front, the week was packed with so much fun, there was never a dull moment. We even had a rock star at camp!! Mike McCready, the lead guitarist from pearl jam was here. He was here to answer questions the kids had, and was a real inspiration. We also had so many fantastic volunteers from the counselors to the huge medical staff that was here for the entire week. It was so awesome seeing these kids, that live with such a painful disease, have huge smiles and have so much fun. I never once, that entire week, saw a single kid complain. It was truly life changing spending a week with such great kids. Heres a link to a short slide show we put together from that week. Enjoy!!!


P.S. Please take a minute to like and share our facebook page so that everyone can see the awesome things we do here at camp colman.

Summer Camp 2013 Has Arrived!


This week, YMCA Camp Colman is hosting Camp Oasis which is organized by The Chron's and Colitis Foundation of America, also known as CCFA. This camp is designed for children with Chron's or Colitis to enjoy a week at camp with kids who are able to relate to living and thriving with IBD. We had a few special guests this week including Mike McCready, lead guitarist of Pearl Jam as well as  Cowboys vs Chron's. Cowboys vs Chron's consists of two gentlemen from Gardiner, Montana riding to Bellingham, WA on horseback to raise awareness for Chron's Disease.

Stay tuned for more pics and fun happenings from YMCA Camp Colman!

(But let's be honest, when is it not?!)

Anticipation built as the students left dinner to go get ready for the evening activity-but not before a quick note to "keep underwear, under there!"  Kent Elementary students put on their wackiest clothes, fine tuned their best dance moves (cupid shuffle anyone??), and threw their cares to the wind, for tonight was a night to do the funky chicken, belt out the YMCA, and be the silliest campers that ever set foot in the Anderson Lodge!

You can experience the fun of the Dork Dance at summer camp 2013! Head to campcolman.org for more info on the dork dance and all of the other activities we offer.
