At YMCA Camp Mason we believe that every child has great potential and deserves the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. For more than 118 years we have built a caring, inclusive community that ensures kids have access to experiences that will help them learn, grow and thrive.
“I made so many new friends and now I know I can do anything!” – 14 year old girl
Our schedule allows campers to try new things and improve their skills while developing confidence, gaining a sense of independence, and having fun! Campers enjoy a varied daily schedule that includes choice activities, group games, swimming, and a period of recreation time.
“I come to camp for all of the great activities.” – 13 year old boy
From canoeing to ziplining through the trees to performing at the talent show, there is something for everyone! Activities include archery, court games, fishing, mountain biking, low and high ropes adventures, skateboarding, street hockey, improvisational comedy, arts and crafts, music, drama, aerial silks, canoeing, rock climbing, hiking, sports, and gardening just to name a few! Campers can even sign up for FREE off-site trips to explore our fantastic natural surroundings on the Delaware River Gap National Recreation Area.
“Camp Mason is my home away from home!” – 10 year old boy
Campers stay in comfortable cabins with each cabin group determined by age and with two counselors who live alongside the campers. Our counselors, from around the U.S. and the world, are professional, trained, and prepared to mentor campers throughout their stay. By treating each child with dignity, we teach and live our values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility throughout the camp day.
“At camp I can be myself.” – 8 year old girl
Ninety-eight percent of our camper parents report that their child felt a sense of belonging at camp, and 93 percent of parents indicated that their child’s self-image improved as a result of attending YMCA Camp Mason. By connecting youth with positive adult role models and encouraging the development of independence and strong values, your child will thrive at camp.
Summer camp builds empathy, self-esteem, and a sense of discovery. Our campers walk away having made friends from all walks of life and feeling as though they really can go Anywhere From Here! Find out more at www.campmason.org or by calling 908-362-8217 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
