Family Camp

Family Camp Weekend

Join us for three days of fun and relaxation!

Friday, September 1, 2017 — Monday, September 4, 2017

Sometimes you need to disconnect to make real connections. Spend quality time with your family before the hectic school year starts again and reconnect with nature here at the serene surroundings of Camp Sloane!

Whether you are Camp Sloane Alum, a returning Camp Sloane family or you simply want to see what Camp Sloane is all about, this is the weekend to turn off your phones, disconnect from your screens and focus on the simpler things in life.

Sign up today for this incredible weekend of fun, adventurous connections. Camp is calling! 

Camping for the entire family

Climb the tower, zip the biplane or swing from the trees!

Take a boat out for an afternoon on the water or waterski around Long Pond

Put your dancing shoes on for a traditional Camp Sloane square dance! 

Or just relax by your families assigned tent, and enjoy some downtime around the campfire!

Early Bird registration fees must be paid in full no later than Friday, August 25. Registrations not paid in full by this date will be charged the late registration fee, regardless of the date on which the registration was received by Camp Sloane YMCA. 

Refunds for cancelled registration will be given until August 25, less a $100 cancellation fee.

THERE IS NO EVENING MEAL ON FRIDAY NIGHT. Please plan accordingly 

Check-in on Friday is between 5:00PM and 10:00PM

For the safety and security of everyone at Family Camp, all registered participants will be given a wristband on arrival. You are required to have your wristband on throughout the weekend. All vehicles will be given a parking pass. The parking pass must remain visible on the dashboard of your vehicle throughout the weekend. 

Section, Tent and Cabin Requests: 

We will be asking all our families if they prefer to stay on the Family side of camp or the Adult side. The Family side works well for folks who tend to be early to rise and have young children. Quiet hours will be from 10:00PM to 6:00AM. The adult side is great for night owls who like the quiet and serenity of morning to wash over them until just a few moments before breakfast. Quiet hours will be from midnight to 8:00AM. 

We will make every effort to honor your section and tent request. However, Camp Sloane YMCA reserves the right to make all final decisions regarding housing assignments. If you are unsure of where you stayed last year, please call Camp Sloane at 860-435-2557 and ask—we’ll help you out! 

In general, we assign one family to each tent. However, Camp Sloane YMCA reserves the right to assign participants to as many bed spaces as are in each tent (as many as eight). 

Cabin rooms are rented as a unit and are considered to be in the Family side of camp. They include the registration fee for as many as two or four people, depending on the number of beds in each room. A family or group may not register more people than the number of beds for each room.
