We have changed our name!

Introducing:

YMCA of the Seven Council Fires

 

Our Board of Directors, Board of Trustees, key staff and community members made up the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion task force. This group was tasked with creating the new name for this unique YMCA to represent the community as effectively as possible. 

For the time being we will have all website traffic land here while we build our new website and transition the information to the new site. 

We will be transitioning the names of all of our social media and creating a new website, ymca7fires.org

Thank you for your support through these changes!

50 YEARS OF CAMPING

We wonder what Leslie Marrowbone envisioned 50 years ago on the shores of Lake Oahe. 50 years ago is when the Sioux Y made it's stance to youth development with the first ever summer camp. The years have been unique, not without challenges, but with huge reward. Thank you to all of our supporters who made the growth of camp possible. We are aiming to raise $50,000 for our campers. Here is a breakdown of what your gift can do for our youth:

$20 - Provides S.T.E.M. and craft supplies to enhance our intentional camp curriculum

 

$50 - Provides essentials, including sleeping bags, bedding, and toiletries

 

$100 - Provides 25 healthy and nutritious meals and snacks 

 

$250 - Provides one week of transportation for campers to eliminate barriers 

 

$500 - Scholarships a camper for an amazing week at Camp Marrowbone

 

$1000 - Scholarships a 2 week Teen Development Participant, includes college visits

Thank you for your support! 

CAMP MARROWBONE

Our goal is to teach life skills through the character traits of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility and traditional Lakota values.

YOUTH PROGRAMS

Sioux YMCA youth programs build on a child's natural curiosity by providing ample opportunities to explore, dream, and discover.
