Get ready to experience acres of fun, adventure and skill-building at Lake Stockwell, our Day Camp for boys and girls, located in a wooded wonderland in the heart of the South Jersey Pines. This traditional co-ed Summer Camp offers theme-based enriching activities, leadership development for boys and girls, group games, sports, fitness activities, hands-on science projects, arts & crafts, music, swimming, horseback riding, archery, boating, kayaking and much more. 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! Campers spend a lot of time in the outdoors, enjoying pristine lakes, hiking trails, a ropes course, a climbing wall, a nature center and dedicated program areas, in addition to an air-conditioned gym and a craft center. Each day is packed with safe, age-appropriate activities, new friends and personal growth.

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!

What about Leadership Opportunities?

Teen Leadership Programs: Ages 14-15

At Lake Stockwell Day Camp, we offer outstanding leadership experiences through our Leader-in-Training (LIT) and the Counselor-in-Training (CIT) programs, where Campers develop leadership abilities and hone their life skills while still enjoying the myriad of fun and adventurous activities that Day Camp has to offer.

Whether you’re a young Camper looking for summer fun or a teen striving for personal growth and character building, our offerings at Lake Stockwell provide a well-rounded experience in a Camp in the Pines where lifelong friendships are forged.
