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

“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 values, leadership, and builds confidence. Memories to last a life time!”

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

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.

    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.
