About Family Camp: Our mission guides us to not only work with youth but also with the key systems affecting their lives. Family Camp is one way we do this.familyCamp

Family Camp is open to children ages 6-18 and their parents. Take part, as a family, in Y Day Camp activities like archery, canoeing, nature, arts & crafts and free swim. We provide staffing for the entire camp experience, with skilled guidance at each activity area. Family Camp is led by Susan Fortier (MWYMCA Senior Program Director and Y Day Camp Director), Steve Fortier (MWYMCA Executive Director), and other Y Day Camp staff.

Families supply their own food and beverage.

Space is limited to ten families. Enrollment closes on 7/1. Family Camp will be held rain or shine (a good adventure doesn't yield to bad weather!).

The fee for Family Camp is sliding scale: $25-$100/family, you choose. Financial Assistance is available.
