At YMCA Camp Colman we work to create an inclusive, low-risk environment in which individuals are empowered to discover their unique strengths and talents and encouraged to share those with their peers, their community, and the environment.  We do this through inviting exploration, encouraging curiosity, guiding critical thinking, and supporting effort in the Environmental Sciences, Outdoor Skills and Challenge Education.


Please see the supporting documents on the right side of this page to plan your school’s experience and prepare your community for a great time at Camp Colman’s Outdoor Environmental Education Program.
