The Y's summer camps provide a safe community where young people explore, build self-esteem and interpersonal skills, and make lasting friendships and memories. At camp, kids learn the value of friendship, and develop lasting memories. In this day and age, camp is more relevant than ever. There‚Äôs something so special about being immersed in nature, away from technology and the stresses of life that are inherent in our everyday endeavors.

Our camp programs (both overnight and day camp) run weekly or bi-weekly sessions, all set with a theme. These give our campers an opportunity to tap into their imaginations and put them to good use. During their week, campers experience more than just the activities, they experience their troubles and insecurities washing away. They feel a sense of belonging and camaraderie, and discover things about themselves they never knew before. In our exciting, intentional, safe and nurturing camp environment, youth learn the importance of good character all while making lasting friendships and memories.
