Yunasa & Yunasa West:
Created Specifically for Gifted Youth

Designed and led by eminent experts in the field of gifted youth, Yunasa embraces gifted children for who they are, helping them understand and work with the unique joys and challenges that gifted children face. Many traditional programs for gifted youth focus solely on intellectual abilities, overlooking the need for these children to grow in all aspects of their lives. Yunasa supports the whole gifted child, encouraging growth and support of campers intellectually, socially, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.


2021 Yunasa Program Updates 

The Yunasa team is currently working with our hosts – YMCA Camp Shady Brook and YMCA Camp Copneconic – on safety procedures in accordance with the field guide developed by the American Camp Association and guidelines from the Center for Disease Control.
