Summer Overnight Camp
Our Overnight Camps are divided into three age groups (according to the grade the child is entering). The youngest are entering 3rd and 4th grade. The middle age group are entering 5th and 6th grade. The oldest age group are entering 7th, 8th and 9th grade. By staging our activities and schedules appropriately, each group of campers will have a unique camp experience that is appropriate for their age. In addition to keeping many of the same traditions Camp Algonquin is known for, our camp leadership is dedicated to advancing the mission of the YMCA and modeling the four core values in all of our programming.

If you’re interested in spending your entire summer at camp as a counselor someday, then check out the Counselor-in-Training program. This program fosters leadership growth in high school students and focuses on important counselor skills and working with children. This program requires at least a two week commitment. June 24th through the 29th all CIT’s will spend the week at camp learning about leadership and counseling skills. Then each CIT is expected to spend at least one week of their summer volunteering at camp.
