PROGRAM THEMES

SUMMER 2023

What is a Mini-Yo-We Program Theme?


Each week our Program Team goes above and beyond to incorporate a unique theme for our campers. They create silly characters, funny storylines, and awesome activities that all revolve around a central theme such as "Pirate Shipwreck" or "Adventures Around The World". Campers learn their theme two weeks before they arrive in their "Get Excited" camper mailing.


Costumes & Characters

Our staff team loves to dress up and create props that go along with the weekly theme! Don't hesitate to bring a costume that fits the weekly theme!

Mini-Yo-We Magic

Program themes are part of what makes Mini-Yo-We so special! Our team has decades of experience creating magical experiences for campers based on their theme.

Friday = Special Day

On Fridays the Program Team pulls out all the stops for the climax of our weekly theme! Spoiler: This is usually when we defeat the bad guys, solve the mystery and save Camp!


2022 Program Themes!
