We also specialize in character development and team building for boys and girls – and we’re technology free, so children can happily unplug from devices while they’re here!

What's different about Explorers?
Explorers Program: Ages 12-15
Our Explorers Program at Lake Stockwell Day Camp is designed especially to fit the needs of our older Day Campers (12- to 15-year-olds). Explorers get to experience all of our regular fun-filled YMCA Camp activities, along with a few more challenging initiatives on our state-of-the-art Challenge Course, where they learn teamwork, communication skills and leadership. Weekly field trips to exciting local destinations and specially designed teen programs for boys and girls round out the Explorers Program. Explorers is a perfect teen program for boys and girls!
CIT Program: 10th Grade
Do you have what it takes to be a future leader? We think you do, and we can help you achieve it!
Our CIT program is a very competitive 5-week commitment, designed to provide a unique training opportunity to returning campers who have a love of the camp environment and have demonstrated a strong desire to work with children in a leadership capacity. Participants are held to high expectations, and are trained to lead activities for both younger campers and peers.
Participants of our program not only get to enjoy the rewarding, fun and challenging aspects of camp from a different vantage point, but are able to discover their capacity for leadership and potentially transition into the role of counselor camp.
The CIT participants will attend the weekly field trips with the Explorers campers. This allows them to still be teens, too!
