For Youth Development: Camp:
Teen Camps are adventure camps specifically for students entering 6th through 8th grade.
Teens will take field trips at least two times per week to places that have been selected based upon their capability to teach the group leadership skills, social and cultural awareness, community service, and working together. The other days will be dedicated to activities on-site related to the theme of that week. Some of the field trips may include the following destinations: YMCA Camps, local attractions, CT State Parks, movies, and much more!
All field trips are included with price of camp, with the exception of a small number of trips. For more information on this or any of our Teen Camp field trips, please contact Director Tim Gabbard at email@example.com
Since some of the field trips will not last for the entire camp day, there will be other scheduled activities to engage each camper’s spirit, mind and body such as: sports activities, group games, team building, and recreational swimming at the Wheeler Regional Family YMCA.
Fees: $300 per 1 week session (3 field trips included)
