Each year, all students in grades 1-5 look forward to their 3 day, 2 night adventure at YMCA Camp Hanes, located in the foothills of NC, just 25 miles northwest of Winston-Salem.

Camp days are filled with hands-on, age-appropriate learning experiences like geology, forest ecology, hiking, archery, climbing, and zip lines!  Nights are filled with group activities like singing around the campfire. It's sure to be a highlight of your child's SMS experience!
