Camps at the YMCA share one thing: they’re about discovery. Kids have the opportunity to explore, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence, and make lasting friendships and memories—and they’re fun too!
"I just think it is a positive experience that all kids should have at least once in their lifetimes!" - Camper Parent Read more.
Our staff undergoes a background check, two interviews, 10 days of extensive training, and are certified in First Aid and CPR. Approximately 75% of our staff were Y campers themselves, and continue to reinforce our strong tradition of excellence in camping. Several of our counselors come from other countries, providing campers a wealth of cultural knowledge. Our cabin counselors are fully supported by year-round directors with many years of experience.
