Camp Sloane YMCA Starts In
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

Activities

Campers have three elective periods each morning. They choose their electives on the first full day at camp (Monday Funday) and take each elective for 5 days (4 days in a one-week session). One-week campers only get 3 electives while two-week campers get 6. In the afternoon, every tent will have Tent Bonding Time (TBT) where, as a group, they choose an activity like zip-lining, tie-dye, pontoon boat rides or basketball.

All of our activities are available to all of our campers except for waterskiing and horseback riding, which are offered at an additional cost. A few activities do have age restrictions due to the progression of our activities and our interest in giving campers things to look forward to as they continue on at camp.
