This past weekend YMCA Camp Hough kicked off the 2015 camping season with a visit from over 100 girls from the East Genesee Girl Scout Service Unit. The girls and their leaders enjoyed many activities at the camp’s location on Silver Lake. With a survivor theme Girl Scout Leaders and volunteers planned many great activities such as Relay Races, Scavenger Hunts, Knife Safety, and Arts and Crafts. Girls also joined YMCA Camp Hough staff for Archery and Rock Climbing. YMCA Camp Hough Director Valerie Brey said, “I love working with the Girl Scouts because they always have so many great ideas and positive energy. I just had a child run half-way across lower camp to thank me for encouraging her to keep climbing on the rock wall. That is why we do what we do.” For more information on YMCA Camp Hough Rentals or Resident Summer Camp visit www.camphough.org or call (585) 344-1664.

Tuesday March 18-The Medina Association of Churches gathered to listen to Valerie Brey speak about GLOW YMCA Camp Hough. As director of the resident summer camp, Brey is very passionate about what summer camp can do for a child. The group listened intently as she told stories about children’s experiences at camp. Brey stated, “I started to tear up as a mom told me in-between tears how thankful she was to have her sons at camp. They had had a rough year and they were often bullied at school but this was not the case at camp. At YMCA Camp Hough they were accepted and had friends.” Since the YMCA believes so firmly in the positive impact camp can have on a child, they are partnering with local churches and businesses to provide this experience at a discounted rate. YMCA Camp Hough is a part of the GLOW (Genesee, Livingston, Orleans, Wyoming) YMCA Association and is located on Silver Lake in Wyoming County. For more information about summer opportunities visit their website at www.camphough.org or contact Valerie Brey at 585.344.1664.
