YMCA to Shut Down after March 17

A YMCA camp will shut it's down for the final time on March 17 after the local YMCA was forced to file for bankruptcy.

Camp Algonquin, operated by the McHenry County YMCA, has been in operation for over a century.  However, due to several lawsuits filed against the local YMCA, as well as other extenuating circumstances, the local favorite was forced to enter into bankruptcy.

One such lawsuit is for the wrongful death of Jimmy Avant, 18, Melvin Choice Jr., 17, and Adrian Jones, 16, who lost their lives in  2008. On Nov. 14 the three teens snuck out of their cabins and attempted to use paddleboats to cross Fox River. However, the boats stoppers had been removed for the winter and immediately sank. Choice's mother filed suit against the YMCA and VisionQuest Association, the group responsible for organizing the retreat. 

Since the YMCA filed for bankruptcy Camp Algonquin has been unable to honor its lease with McHenry County Conservation District.
