About American Youth Foundation - Miniwanca

We are a nonprofit youth development organization that engages thousands of youth in programming year round at our beautiful property in Michigan. Youth ages 5-18 from across the country, and even internationally, come to our camps for community and school programs, summer camps, leadership conferences, and other activities to experience a mission that helps them discover the best in themselves. Since 1925 we have been welcoming people to discover the richness of our outdoor environments, the fun of interacting with a positive community, and the challenge of self-discovery.
