As we are continuing to adjust with COVID-19 and staying up to date with current states’ regulations- the IEA staff and Yunasa team are incredibly excited to be able to welcome new and returning campers back to a fully in-person Yunasa program for 2022. We are thankful to our camp hosts for their diligence to ensure a safe and joyful environment following CDC’s Summer Camp guidelines and utilizing American Camp Association’s resources.

There will be some slight changes to kick-off Yunasa 2022. We’re excited to share that Yunasa Michigan will be moving to a new more intimate location in July. Building partnerships with organizations who share the same values in supporting our campers’ emotional, physical, spiritual, intellectual, and social well-being are important values to IEA and we feel lucky to be able to share this with a new place.

This summer, Yunasa Michigan will be held at Howell Nature Center in Howell, MI. Campers will get to witness some of their key landmarks from their Pleasant Lake, their fun-filled Tree House, to the beautiful greenery that surrounds the site! The Yunasa team has been collaborating and preparing for this upcoming season with the staff at Howell Nature Center and at YMCA Camp Shady Brook, and we are thrilled to connect with teams who are enthusiastic and passionate in serving the needs of our campers.

This is an exciting time for our families whether new or returning. If you’re interested in applying to our Yunasa program, the application is live!

You may find the link to the application here.

Please note that the deadline to submit your camper’s application is March 14, 2022.

If you have any questions regarding the program or application process, please contact the Program Coordinator, Issabela Tulalian at itulalian@educationaladvancement.org.
