camp opportunities

YMCA Summer Camps provide opportunities for teens, too. From exciting Teen Camp adventures to leadership opportunities through counselor-in-training programs, to opportunities to lead campers at Camp Carter, teens can find a great way to spend their summers in YMCA camps.

Teen Leadership Camp –TLC:

TLC is a camp for teens where they engage in a variety of activities that build their leadership skills. During the week teen campers participate in team-building activities and gain an understanding of behavior and risk management, supervision, water safety, and project planning. Working with trained YMCA staff, teens learn effective methods for interacting with younger children. Each week has a unique focus and includes fun field trips, swim days, and other teen-chosen activities.
