The Camp Connections program is appropriate for children ages 7-18 who are able to participate in a group with a 1:3 staff to camper ratio. Campers who are in need of extra care may choose to bring an aide.

In addition to completing a Registration Form, we ask parents to fill out the Camper Questionnaire. Once the completed Camper Questionnaire is received, the Y will contact each family with information regarding next steps in the camp registration process. Please keep in mind that space is limited for this program and campers will be considered on a first come, first served basis. Financial Assistance is available for this program.

We look forward to a fantastic summer with our Camp Connections families!
