Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities. Camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership. Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.
Safety is our #1 priority! Our counselors are hired based on their skills and receive intensive training in a variety of topics prior to the start of each camp season and are First Aid and CPR certified.
