Where Children & Teens Become Campers For Life
NOTE: As you know, our priority is always the health and safety of our campers. As we begin to plan for Summer 2023, we are still determining which COVID-19 Protocols will be implemented for the summer. We will be working with the New York State Department of Health, CDC, and American Camp Association to stay updated. To see what we did last summer, please look at our 2022 COVID-19 FAQ page.

Summer camp offers children a magical world of play. There is nothing to turn on, re-charge, or re-boot; nature does that all on her own. Our imaginations do the rest. At Frost Valley YMCA, we offer sports, arts and crafts, hiking, horseback riding, rock climbing, canoeing, swimming, singing, storytelling around the campfire, and sleeping underneath a canopy of stars. Our traditions—hoopla, stories, songs, and cheers, the annual Olympix ceremony, and the Hirdstock music festival—introduce campers to the roles that creativity and imagination play in sports, education, and of course, play. Here, kids revel in the wonders of childhood. In this environment, friendships are quickly made and long-lasting. The experience far exceeds anything a power cord could ever supply. Frost Valley YMCA is the premier summer camp located in New York’s Catskill Mountains only a couple of hours from New York City. The camp offers one of the most breathtaking natural settings in the country for children. With over 100 summers under our belt, Frost Valley is guided by our mission to build a healthy mind, body, & spirit for all. Children from all backgrounds come together to try exciting & new things in a safe environment while building friendships. All of our camping programs focus on character development through our 8 core values: Caring, Community, Diversity, Honesty, Inclusiveness, Respect, Responsibility, and Stewardship.
