Camp Jewell YMCA is filled with moments of fun, friendship, self-confidence and memories that will last your child a lifetime! We provide a diverse environment for ages 7-15 paired with a full range of activities to bring out the best in your child.
Summer camp gives kids the opportunity to gain independence and confidence as well as learn new life skills. If you ask a camper what they like about camp, 95% of them will say something about being allowed to “be themselves”. This is the result of a carefully crafted culture that is accepting of all, diverse in nature, and built on the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
Our nationally-known resident camp program provides youth ages 7-16 with an opportunity to feel a part of something bigger than themselves. Campers learn that every challenge is easier when you are confident in who you are as a person, and that this confidence comes from knowing you are truly cared about by more than just your immediate family.
Parents tell us all the time “my child came home a different person”. We hear countless stories about how their kids have a renewed sense of self, that they are more willing to take on responsibilities and challenges both at school and at home. Nothing will do more for a young person’s self-esteem than allowing them to discover a “natural talent”. A wide variety of activities and a culture that encourages trying new things makes for many opportunities to discover one’s own gifts.
Kids leave Camp Jewell with more self-confidence, more resiliency, and with more of an understanding of themselves. We have been doing it for well over a hundred years, and we will be doing it for the next hundred years too.
