Bynden Wood Day Camp
Opening a World of Wonder for Each Child
Surrounded by nature, Bynden Wood's outdoor mountaintop facility provides campers with a unique summer camp experience. We offer a wide range of activities and we are one of the only Day programs in Berks County that offers swimming in an outdoor pool every day. Bynden Wood's programming is based on the four core values of the YMCA (Caring, Respect, Honesty and Responsibility). Our staff are professional role models and they provide the support, leadership and supervision for children to learn new skills, build self-confidence and make new friends. At Bynden Wood, our staff truly beleive that "Children Come First".
The Day Camp hours are from 8:30AM until 4:15PM, Monday-Friday. Families and campers are greeted in front of Bynden Wood Lodge and the day begins with new friends, songs and Flag Raising. Campers, ages 5 (must have completed Kindergarten) -14, are assigned to their Tribe of 8-12 campers of the same age with two adult counselors. The camp day is full with a diverse activity schedule including one hour every day at the pool for both instructional and recreational swimming.
