Since 1901, Camp Jewell YMCA has facilitated lasting and meaningful relationships between campers, families, guests, staff and members of our camp community.

Our Summer Camp program gives young people an opportunity to learn independence, build self-esteem, and develop critical social skills that will lead them to future success.

Family Camps provide opportunities for families to spend quality time with one another, away from the distractions of technology and the rigors of everyday life.

School groups improve school climate through teambuilding, enhance classroom lessons through practical experiences, and raise achievement by adding a novel outdoor camp experience to their curriculum.

Countless community groups such as scout groups, churches and synagogues, mentorship programs, and the United Way use camp for a recreational escape.  A recreational experience at camp allows participants to learn new skills, build relationships with others, and recharge in a relaxed and comfortable setting.

Set on 540 acres of majestic woodlands, our spacious facilities, lake with various waterfront activities, high and low ropes courses and cabins can accommodate groups up to 500.

As a branch of the YMCA of Greater Hartford, all of our programs are intended to foster an appreciation for each other and the world around us through the YMCA core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.
