Young Men Soar in the Great Outdoors

UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Frost Valley YMCA will not be offering camp programs of any kind for summer 2020. Please read this message from our CEO for more details.

Building off our successful Young Women’s Leadership trips, this set of trips is designed to build a camper’s self-confidence through wilderness challenges, growth experiences, and empowering interpersonal relationships with same-gender peers. We will also facilitate and engage in intentional conversations about gender roles in the leadership and the outdoors.

*These trips are led by same-gender counselors and are open to any male-identifying camper.*
