“I can’t say enough great things about the camp staff. My daughter has Down Syndrome and this was her first experience at an away camp. The staff took such great care of her and gave her the needed attention to allow her to have a positive experience. The other girls in her cabin accepted her and embraced her instead of teasing her. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!” “After going to Camp Duncan in the 2nd grade my son said he couldn’t wait to be a counselor there. Eight years later, after the LIT session, he is on his way. He would be a different kid without his wonderful weeks at Camp Duncan every summer!” “I was a bit nervous sending my daughter to Camp Duncan for her first camp experience. When we arrived the first day, the butterflies went away due to the way the camp is run. Everyone was

so helpful, friendly and the camp is very clean.”

Our Values and Mission As part of the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago, Camp Duncan is committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility while focusing on the values of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility. The Y Camp Difference We have a solid history of providing exceptional camp experiences – dating all the way back to 1921!

“I can’t say enough great things about the camp staff. My daughter has Down Syndrome and this was her first experience at an away camp. The staff took such great care of her and gave her the needed attention to allow her to have a positive experience. The other girls in her cabin accepted her and embraced her instead of teasing her. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!” “After going to Camp Duncan in the 2nd grade my son said he couldn’t wait to be a counselor there. Eight years later, after the LIT session, he is on his way. He would be a different kid without his wonderful weeks at Camp Duncan every summer!” “I was a bit nervous sending my daughter to Camp Duncan for her first camp experience. When we arrived the first day, the butterflies went away due to the way the camp is run. Everyone was

so helpful, friendly and the camp is very clean.”
