The Mission of the South Mountain YMCA is to provide a camping experience, educational and other programs that build personal leadership, character and life skills while developing caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in young people, families and communities.
South Mountain YMCA Camps’ Statement on Diversity and Inclusion:
A cause-driven YMCA Camp and Conference Center is led by staff and volunteers who intentionally strive to promote an inclusive organizational culture that values diversity, strengthens inclusion, and builds a global community in the U.S. and abroad. At the South Mountain YMCA Camps, we work to ensure that everyone, regardless of race, gender, income, faith, sexual orientation, ability, or cultural background feels welcome and has an opportunity to participate in our programs and camp community.
Our staff and volunteers should be welcoming, nurturing, determined, genuine, and hopeful for each and every visitor to our campus
Every person shares the potential to grow in wisdom, to discover their unique and independent voice, to nurture others and to engage their communities
The fun and challenging programs we offer foster communication, trust, problem-solving and deeper spiritual connections, while preparing young people to lead and be led
Our programs, volunteer opportunities, and are “for all”
