SUMMER CAMP - ALL SESSIONS FOR ALL AGES ARE CLOSED FOR 2017
Camp, 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. Camp teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all while having fun and creating meaningful relationships. Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every attendee.
The Y is one of the largest providers of camp programs. There are over 1,850 day camps across the country, serving 1.4 million youth. The Y also gives youth early work experience, employing 61,000 college-aged young adults, guiding their career interests in youth development. Tens of thousands of teens are annually enrolled in our “Counselor in Training” (CIT) program every summer at YMCA day camps which provide valuable responsibilities in leadership.
