Camp Review

My son’s experience at camp Jewell has been life changing for him. We will forever be grateful for the financial help we have received from Camp Jewell. He would not have been able to go without this help.

Camp Review

My daughter had some personal challenges during the academic year. She really needed to have a good summer plan. After her first summer at Camp Jewell, she was able to overcome challenges better and developed life skills and personal values that will help her life long. Now, every year she looks forward to another summer at camp.

Camp Review

“This is the best summer camp ever. This is my second home, the place where I feel the safest, happiest, best. I have been coming to Camp Jewell for 4 years and loved it more each year I went back. The counselors are AMAZING and the people you will meet will stay with you your entire life. I would recommend this camp to anyone.”

Camp Review

Being able to have all 3 children attend this year was great for us parents, giving us comfort that they are well cared-for, and having the ability to support each other while being away from us. We feel that Camp Jewell offers them a chance for independence and responsibility while having fun.

    You don’t realize it at the time.

    Climbing this wall, crossing this lake, and cleaning this cabin will change you. Cooking dinner over this fire and under these stars will be remembered decades later. The friends you made around that fire will be with you still. This is Camp Jewell.

    Part of what helps keep Camp Jewell YMCA running is the generosity of others. Volunteers give of their time and Annual Campaign supporters give of the financial resources. And there’s another type of donor that often gets less recognition—those are our community partners that give us hand-me-downs of supplies that they are no longer using but that have life still left in them.
