Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities. Camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all amidst the fun of camp fires, archery, talent shows, and meaningful relationships. Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.
DAY CAMPS: Day camp can offer almost all of the benefits of traditional camp - new experiences, skill building, a sense of community and lasting friendships - in rural and urban settings while allowing campers to return home each afternoon.
SPECIALTY CAMPS: Camping is for everyone, and the Y offers specialty camps that focus on particular programming like teen adventure, sports specilaites, technology and science, fishing and outdoors, and more.
