Interested in Overnight Camp?

For more 110 years area youth have been calling YMCA Camp Seymour their summer home. Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.
