Board of Directors

Camp Olson YMCA is a volunteer-led organization. Our Board of Directors are community leaders who generously donate their time and expertise by establishing operating policies, providing planning and strategic direction, and helping to secure the resources we need to promote change in the community and advance the YMCA’s mission.

Under the Bylaws of Camp Olson YMCA, members of the corporation meet annually and elect members to the Board of Directors for a three-year term.  The Board of Directors then manages the affairs of the corporation.  Currently, there are 13 board members who meet monthly to ensure all resolutions of the Board of Directors are implemented, observe and enforce all rules and policies of Camp Olson such as The Camp Olson Code of Conduct. The Camp Olson Board of Directors also hires and assesses the performance of the Executive Director on an annual basis.  The Camp Olson Board of Directors operates under the Carver model of governance.  Serving on the Board of Directors is voluntary and without reimbursement.  Camp Olson’s fiscal year is October 1 -September 30.
