For over 100 years Camp Jewell YMCA has been a pioneer in off-camp summer camp adventure trips. Our trips offer teens new challenges through activities like kayaking, rock climbing, hiking, and biking. They are led by specifically trained staff that are over 21 years of age who are selected for their leadership experience, certifications, and love of the outdoors. Campers will have an opportunity to get to know themselves and each other better, as well as build strong relationships within their adventure trip group. From our base in northwest Connecticut campers will visit national parks, theme parks, Cape Cod and more!
