Traditional Camps

Co-Ed, for campers entering grades 1-9 in Fall 2018, unless otherwise noted

The YMCA Camp Colman program is designed to allow each camper to have a safe and fun experience in a beautiful natural setting. Campers are grouped by age and gender in comfortable cabins supervised by two counselors. All cabins have electricity and bathrooms. Each day campers have opportunities for structured and unstructured play, skill development, and social bonding with peers. The traditional camp experience includes activities such as campfires, archery, arts & crafts, swimming, boating, climbing, soccer, basketball, drama, high ropes initiatives, and more. Each evening, all of camp comes together for activities such as capture the flag or campfire. Days end with cabin groups having a Values Session, designed to encourage reflection and personal growth.
