Where Friends and Fun Come Together
Sleeping at camp is a defining characteristic of our overnight camps. By living with other participants and sharing outdoor experiences, children develop lifelong skills like teamwork, personal responsibility, and respect – for nature, for others, and for themselves.
While all YMCA overnight camps feature 'traditional' camp activities – including archery, swimming, paddling, outdoor education, climbing/challenge, arts and crafts, fishing, and so much more – each location is unique in how and what 'specialty activities' it offers.
These 'specialty activities' create space for participants to pursue a wide range of interests that they may only get a sample of otherwise – like archery, horseback riding, sailing, and much more.
