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

“My kids have gone to Jewell for many years. Their experiences there have shaped them. They have leaned valuable social skills which have prepared them for life. Their camp friends are their friends forever and they come from all all walks of life. Best money I have spent on their childhood experiences and they would agree! Camp Jewell is the best!”

Camp Review

“Camp Jewell is AWESOME! Both of my campers had a great time there, they made lots of new friends that they stay in touch with. The counselors and directors were amazing, the activities fun and most of all my kids begged me to stay! They will definitely be returning!”

Camp Review

“Amazing sleepaway camp for anyone looking for fun, adventure, and challenges! Great activities, staff, and facilities. Meet many new people from around the world. Many opportunites to try new things. Teaches core YMCA vlaues, leadership, and builds confidence. Memories to last a life time!”
