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 extensive training in a variety of topics prior to the start of each camp season and are First Aid and CPR certified.
