Click to report rating    7/13/08   5     5     5     5     5   I send my children to Camp Duncan every year for 2 weeks. Rona is an amazing camp director who seems to remember every child by name and biography. Every staff member is professional and an excellent example for my kids. Both of my kids had medical needs, and the nurse-Robin-made me feel comfortable and my kids both talk about how much they miss her. The counselors seem to come from all over the world, and introduced my kids to new ideas. If your child has any special medical issues (or even if they don't), you will never regret choosing Camp Duncan. RID: 24802

Click to report rating    3/12/08   5     4     5     5     5   I had gone there as a camper for 7 years, then did LIT/CIT, then this past summer I was a counselor. Great camp, lots of fun, but I was really underpaid. Fun time tho, lots of friends and fond memories. The management team are all pretty nice. Poptart was great, Ronas cool, Niall was fun(nobody else got a 360 in their cabin!). Great time, highly reccomend it. RID: 21182

Click to report rating    11/8/07   4     3     4     4     4   It's a great camp, worked there for a summer, however I would not recommend working there. The staff is underpaid, never gets breaks and is extremely strict on ridiculous things that are out of our control. Often spied on by management staff, accused of things without reasoning, very immature management team. Kids love it though, and it's great for them. RID: 16903

Click to report rating    4/27/07   5     5     5     5     5   My kids have been going to Camp Duncan for 4 years and they absolutely love it!! They have made friends with kids in surrounding school districts and look forward to seeing them in the summers at Camp Duncan. The staff is very attentive, and Tammy, the Day Camp Director, is accessible and great to work with. What keeps my kids coming back is the boating and swimming, offered daily, and my daughter loves the "Blob". We are working parents, and we really like that they have extended care hours before and after camp hours. We love Camp Duncan!! RID: 10232

Click to report rating    4/27/07   5     5     5     5     5   We sent both of our daughters to Duncan for so many summers I can't keep track of the number. Both loved it so much that they have returned as counselors. A very nourishing environment, fun, professional, and organized. We will be sending our two boys there this summer. Additionally, the speciality camps are very unique and wonderful experiences for kids who already have additional challenges in life. Their week at camp is at least one time when they are respected for who they are, rather than what disease or challenge they have. RID: 10218

Click to report rating    4/26/07   5     5     5     5     4   My children, ages 6 & 8 really enjoy the summer camp because of the outdoor activities such as swimming, boating, sports, playground and group play. The staff is very well organized and relate well with the children. It is expensive but the value for what the children get out of it is well worth it. RID: 10191

Click to report rating    4/25/07   5     5     5     5     5   As a parent, I absolutely love this camp. My son's first year, I signed him up for 2 weeks and was nervous that I made that decision. It was the best decision ever made. HE LOVE IT!!!He started crying when we got home, because he wasn't ready to leave. He made friends and really liked the counselors. This will be his 3rd year and he is so excited to return. I love the ethnic diversity of the counselors. His counselors were London, Australia, etc. I wish the resident camp was for the whole summer, I think my son would be in Heaven. RID: 10155

Click to report rating    4/24/07   5     4     5     5     4   My son has been at Camp Duncan for 6 summers. Since 2nd grade he has talked about "when I'm a counsellor at Camp Duncan...." My daughter has gone for 6 summers (4 overnight) and last year insisted on staying for 2 weeks. My son only wanted to stay for 1 since he wasn't going with a buddy. I picked him up, kissed my happy daughter quickly, and drove my son home. In the car he decided he would rather be at camp than home. I called camp to check on space in his cabin, washed his clothes, and drove him back for another week. That told me EVERYTHING! RID: 10080

Click to report rating    4/23/07   5     5     5     5     5   We attended "Family Camp" at camp Duncan last fall and it was better than any camp experience I ever had as a child. The staff was AMAZING!! Activities were scheduled throughout the day that met the needs and desires of ALL of my family members (mom-42, dad-44, daughter-11, son-10). The food was FABULOUS and appropriate for all diets. The best thing?? It had to be integrity of the YMCA core values from the staff as well as the campers. We hope to send both out daughter and our son to summer camp this year, as well as attend family camp again in the fall! RID: 9983

Click to report rating    3/27/07   5     5     5     5     5   I have been going to camp duncan since I was nine, and every year makes me want to live there. The staff is so great, I have bonded with my counselors to the point where I consider them my sisters. There are rarely any problems, and although some may see this place as pricey, it is the best there is. RID: 9019

Click to report rating    1/4/07   5     5     5     5     5   I've been there twice for school field trips for the outdoor education program and was pleased both times. They are so nice and funny. They are a religious camp, but that's not what they teach you there. I have an atheist friend who went and had a blast. I woul highly recoomend going there, especially for more than one day and nght.
