For families looking to keep their children’s minds and bodies active, the Y can give them an adventurous, active and healthy summer.
Camp Mountain Laurel is located on 2705 Downes Road in Hamden. Twenty acres of wooded space with an open shelter, outdoor swimming pool, archery station, gaga pit, ropes course and climbing wall. Dirt paths lead you easily to our Main Building where we have arts & crafts, a summer library for reading, bathrooms, changing rooms and the first aid office. In the morning you can hear the birds chirping and children laughing throughout the camp as the sun begins to peak through the leaves – and you’ll see the tallest trees ever amongst our new larger than life backyard game stations. Come explore nature’s outdoor classroom with us.
We offer a breadth of activities for campers ranging from 3-15 years old. No one sits still at Camp Mountain Laurel! A standard week at camp includes swim lessons followed by recreational swim, archery, weekly STEM activities, hiking, a game of foursquare, soccer or flag football; arts & crafts; quiet reading time, with a little down time to just hanging out with friends. If your child wants something more focused – try one of our Specialty or Swim Camps! Join us for THE BEST SUMMER EVER!
