Traditional Camp 



Traditional Camp  is the mainstay of Y Camp’s summer camp program. It is a great opportunity to experience the many programs and activities that Y Camp offers. Campers are part of a cabin of similarly aged peers, with whom they deliberate and decide on what the week will entail. Our afternoon schedule is designed to give campers and their cabin mates as much flexibility and creative opportunities as possible by allowing them to create the schedule as they go. Y Camp also urges campers to choose their individual adventures through our skills program. They select a set of two to three skill areas they wish to learn more about and spend four days of the week becoming more proficient. Every evening we end with one of our evening programs, which are a chance to bring the whole camp together and enjoy being with the camp community. If your camper is looking for a diverse and empowering experience, Traditional Camp is the place to start.
