The possibilities are endless

Campers have the opportunity to customize their program each week by signing up for three morning clinic activities (one of which can be swim instruction). With a wide range of progressive, skill based clinics our summer camp programs focus on developing social skills, team-work, self-esteem and an appreciation for the environment, all with a healthy dose of fun!

In the afternoon, they head to the waterfront for free swim and cabin activities. Each day concludes with an all camp or village activity and then cabin devotions where campers reflect on the day’s experiences. The weekends are host to special all camp activities ranging from carnivals, to Olympics, to our World Series of Wiffleball!

Plus, there’s time each day for siesta where campers have some quiet time to read a book, hang out with friends, and write letters home!

There are over thirty clinic options, including archery, horseback riding, mountain boarding, pottery, dance and guitar lessons, just to name a few! Below is a sample of some of the activities offered at Camp Jewell YMCA. To discover more about our different activities, please click below….
