Kids’ and Teens’ Year-Round Overnight Camps
Throughout the year, we offer many opportunities for new and returning campers alike to spend time on the Mountain. These camps are a great start for anyone looking into getting their child ready for Summer Camp or to just spend a little time away from home with friends! Check out this year’s Kids’ and Teens’ Camps:
Holiday Camp: December 27-31
New Year’s Eve Lock-In: December 31-January 1
Winter Camp: February 17-20
Each camp is designed for maximum fun and relationship building between our campers. Activities are tailored to the ages of those attending each camp, so every camp is unique!
Activities: Rock Climbing, Noodle Ninja, Friendship Bracelets, Kickball, Human Hungry Hungry Hippos, Low Ropes, Baking, Outdoor Cooking, Archery, Hikes, Reptiles, Wood Burning, Hikes, Sledding (weather permitting), Campfires (and s’mores!), Skits, Songs, Archaeological Digs, Tracking, BB’s, Soccer, and loads more!
The Details: Campers stay in our heated solid wood cabins and eat meals out of our historic Bynden Wood Lodge. Each night we end our day gathered around a campfire to share stories, sing songs, and enjoy each other’s company. Our trained Summer staff supervise and lead all activities throughout the day and sleep in-cabin with our campers.

Adventure Teen Leaders
Teen Leaders is a national movement in YMCA’s across the world. While each individual YMCA has a different style of Leader’s clubs, the main focus is on leadership development and volunteerism. Members of Teen Leaders have the opportunity to forge friendships that can last a lifetime while working and playing with the support of the YMCA and community.
While upholding the YMCA character values of Respect, Responsibility, Caring, and Honesty, each teen plays an active role in the governance of their club and are accountable for working towards personal goals set forth by themselves and the club. Contact Cory Evans, Camp Conrad Weiser Director, at email@example.com or 610-670-2267 ext. 238.
During the summer months, our large outdoor pool is used to offer quality Learn-to-Swim programs.
Our pool is also equipped with plenty of private changing stalls and showers. All programs are subject to rescheduling due to Thunderstorms. Swim lessons are taught using the South Mountain YMCA Learn-to-Swim Swim curriculum. Contact Amanda Griffith at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 610-670-2267 for more information.
