Homesickness is a real and normal feeling to experience while away at Summer Camp. At Frost Valley YMCA, most of our overnight campers are at camp for 12 days, making homesickness a very common experience for our campers. With that being said, our staff have learned countless of ways to help our campers overcome homesickness and enjoy the session despite the homesick feelings.

Check out our new video to see just how we tackle homesickness at camp, featuring the Frost Valley Staff and Campers!
