CAMP OCKANICKON

Overnight Camp for Boys

At Camp Ockanickon, our focus is on the individual growth and development of skills and talents distinctive to boys. Living in rustic cabins with boys their own age, Ocky campers learn cooperation, sharing, fair play and how to forge new, lasting friendships. They spend their days swimming, kayaking, canoeing, enjoying a sport with new friends, improving their aim on the archery range or learning a new appreciation of nature in our Earth Education program. Counselors, trained to be mentors, help teach new skills that build confidence, self-esteem and self-reliance. Character-building while connecting with nature; this is the hallmark of a Camp Ockanickon experience.

CAMP MATOLLIONEQUAY

Overnight Camp for Girls

Camp Matollionequay offers the best of a traditional summer camp experience – amazing friendships, challenging and fun activities – all with a focus on inspiring girls to reach their full potential. With encouragement from an extraordinary staff, Matolly girls have the opportunity to develop positive self-esteem and discover independence in a safe, supportive and nurturing environment. Our campers participate in nature hikes, horseback riding, swimming, canoeing, creative arts, archery, scavenger hunts, a ropes course and so much more. Besides sing-alongs and s’mores by a campfire, Matolly campers end each day with “cabin chat,” to reflect on the day and strengthen friendships. Future leaders are born at Camp Matollionequay.

LAKE STOCKWELL

Day Camp for Boys & Girls

At Lake Stockwell Day Camp, children grow, develop and forge lifelong relationships while exploring a host of new and exciting activities. From water activities and sports to creative arts and the challenge course, each day is packed with safe, age-appropriate activities. The Lake Stockwell program also features weekly theme days, talent shows and family nights, providing an exceptional experience for the first-time camper and returning campers. Counselors are trained to be “Professional Role Models” and their incredible character traits are always on display. A Lake Stockwell experience will positively impact a child, creating memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.

Outdoor Center

We offer the perfect setting for affordable and rewarding day and overnight programs for individuals and groups, including school trips, team-building, family weekends, retreats, Scout and Adventure Guide activities, company picnics and corporate outings. Our professional staff provide participants with a positive environment, as well as fun, safe and age-appropriate activities. Each program is individually tailored to meet the specific needs of your school or group. The possibilities are plentiful; from a leisurely trek on an interpretive nature trail to a challenging climb up a 50-foot wall. Mixing adventure and communing with nature; that’s what we call a perfect outing.

School Age Child Care

We offer quality before- and after-school childcare at eight different school locations, with a philosophy of nurturing each child through caring, understanding and affection. Our well-trained School’s Out staff provide programs that promote learning through play, recreation, age-appropriate instruction and homework assistance. More than just child care, School’s Out is modeled after our top-notch summer camp programs, where personal growth, character-development and relationship-building are at the very core. We also offer a School’s Out At Camp program during selected school closings, where children are supervised by a professional staff and enjoy a full day’s worth of fun and exciting activities at our camp facility.

Our YMCA affiliation means we include the Y’s six core values...

caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, courage and inclusion

... in every aspect of our programming.

THE BEST SUMMER EVER STARTS IN...
