Overnight Camp

campfire

Summer camp is about learning skills, developing character, making friends, and having fun! Few environments are as special as YMCA Camp Campbell Gard, where children become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group. CCG teaches selfreliance, a love for nature, and the development of practices that build leadership. All of that along with the fun of campfires, swimming, canoeing, archery, House Games, and many more activities. At the core of our program are clinics and fun fests. Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday campers will choose which clinics they want to participate in. These clinics allow the camper to develop skills in those activities throughout the week. Funfests are one-time activities that the campers choose from on Tuesday and Friday. Our camp counselors are dedicated to making sure summer camp is a life changing experience for every camper. CCG helps campers increase positive self- images, behaviors, and confidence– all while supporting deeper friendships and bonds.
