Summer Camp

Summer camp is magic. It has the power to transform even the shyest camper into a confident leader. It turns strangers into instant friends. It changes barriers into successes.

Through Menogyn’s trip progression, campers gain confidence as they build skills. By living with other campers, they learn to work together and demonstrate the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

At Y camps, our staff members are enthusiastic and well trained. They guide campers of all backgrounds and abilities through programming that builds character in a safe, encouraging environment.

Camp Menogyn offers programming for teens entering grades 7–12.
