Endless Summer Fun
You can expect all of the annual favorites including swimming, archery, challenge course, sports, nature, arts and crafts, and counselor led activities. We will also continue to offer a variety of specialty camps throughout the summer.
There’s something for every child, all in one location! Our campers range in age from 3-15 years old. Whatever camp program you choose, your camper is sure to have fun, make new friends, grow as a person, and make friends that will last a lifetime.
This summer, we have a wide variety of specialty camps offered each week. With new field trips and activities, specialty camps are a great opportunity to try something different this summer.
We look forward to you joining us at the Hamden/North Haven Y for a summer of fun-filled activities!
