Overnight Camp

Overnight Camp: Ages 7-15

Camp cheers, s’mores, swimming and adventures – it’s the time-tested formula of a great summer camp experience.

Overnight campers forge friendships, strengthen confidence, sharpen character and create lasting memories on YMCA Camp Carter’s beautiful 360 acres. Campers participate in traditional day camp activities, come together for every meal, enjoy campfires, songs and live with their peers in fully climate-controlled cabins.

Specialty Camp Whatever the interest of your child, there is probably a special focus camp for them. This week is geared to strengthening their dedicated focus on the featured skill-set activity. Large parts of the day are spent on the specialty the camper is interested in. However, kids are kids and too much time on one activity can lead to boredom. There is always time given over to other activities, such as the challenge course, free time games, etc.! Skill sets can be things such as archery, riflery, fishing, disc golf, art, sports, just to name a few! Week 6 Registration
