Activate Summer

Are your campers ready to get outside and find friends, fun, and adventure with the Y? Activate their summer with our best-in-class overnight programs for kids and teens in grades 1-12! Camp provides opportunities for kids and teens to explore their sense of self, become a part of a community, and enjoy outdoor experiences like archery, rock climbing, and s’mores over the campfire.  

Traditional Camp

Traditional camp activities may include swimming at the pool, discovering marine life on the beach, arts and crafts, tackling the climbing wall or zipline and enjoying special all-camp events like campfires, dances and carnival. Broken down into 3 age groups - Seekers, Explorers or Challengers - choose the one most appropriate for your camper.

Specialty Camps

Our Specialty Camps are designed for a wide range of experience, from beginner to expert. Throughout the week, groups generally spend half of the day focused on their specialty area, (i.e. fishing or horseback riding). For the remainder of a day, the group’s activities may include swimming in the pool, arts & crafts, archery, visiting the camp store, capture-the-flag, all camp events and campfires.

*Note: Specialty Camp Programs vary year to year.

Teen Expeditions

Teens are drawn to YMCA Expeditions, not just to explore new places, but for the thrill of personal accomplishment and team connection. Expeditions cover a lot more than terrain and water — they're journeys that tap into the very best that each teen has to offer, for themselves and the well-being and growth of the group. One, two and four week programs available.

*Note: Teen Expedition Programs vary year to year.

Teen Leadership Programs

Teen leadership programs build confidence and teach skills for teens to become leaders and role models at camp, in school and throughout their community.
