New York YMCA Camp
New York YMCA Camp has partnered with the BOLD/GOLD Y of the USA movement in wilderness tripping. Our main focus is allowing our oldest campers, 15 and 16 year-olds, to experience the outdoors with back-country activities. We do this by dividing our time both on our 1,000 acre wooded campus and locally, off-site on the river or trail. The intention behind these activities is to provide opportunities for our young adults to learn both how to lead and about their individual leadership style. We also take time to reflect on issues they may be facing in their own lives and those that may be affecting us on a larger scale. Campers will have the chance to learn or advance their skills related to primitive camping as well. The results are pretty amazing!

Maine Teen Camp
A fully elective; 2, 3, 4 or 7 week sleep away camp for teenagers only (13 – 17 years). MTC takes the best aspects of an American Summer Camp - a true community of peers, space and opportunity for growth, introduction to new skills and people, lack of electronic screens and lots of exposure to nature and the chance to simply be yourself - that are most important for teens; while making the whole experience more approachable for a teenage camper - programming designed with teenage needs and interests in mind, an open and welcoming clique-free social environment, and a diverse and international population.
MTC is the best choice for a teen looking to change camps, or try camp for the first time. Your camper can feel confident coming to MTC and knowing that they are not the only "new kid", that the activities and schedule are designed JUST for teenagers, and that they will be meeting new friends from across the country and around the world. Most of our campers come to MTC without knowing anyone else. For a teen looking for a summer of self-growth and independence, this is vital. All our age groups will have significant numbers of first time campers. By focusing only on teens, MTC is not diluting its activity offerings, attempting to cater to 9 year olds and 15 year olds as if they were developmental the same. We recognize that adolescence is a unique stage, and account for this in all we do at camp. We offer a strong activity list featuring rock music, a professional level tennis program, waterskiing and wakeboarding, cooking, and community service (and so much more!)
