Frost Valley YMCA offers traditional overnight summer camp, teen and pre-teen adventure trips, horse camps, farm camp, and its very own adventure survival camp! Children and teens grow in a safe and engaging environment, spending their first nights away from home, gaining skills as young leaders, and bonding with new friends on mountain hikes, swimming and boating in Lake Cole, ziplining, sleeping beneath the starry Catskill sky, and more! Frost Valley offers 1- and 2-week programs from July to August for grades 2-10. Attend an open house or schedule a tour. At Frost Valley YMCA, we offer sports, arts and crafts, hiking, horseback riding, rock climbing, canoeing, swimming, singing, storytelling around the campfire, and sleeping underneath a canopy of stars. Our traditions-hoopla, stories, songs, and cheers, the annual Olympix ceremony, and the Hirdstock music festival-introduce campers to the roles that creativity and imagination play in sports, education, and of course, play. Here, kids revel in the wonders of childhood. In this environment, friendships are quickly made and long-lasting. Frost Valley YMCA is the premier summer camp located in New York's Catskill Mountains only a couple of hours from New York City. The camp offers one of the most breathtaking natural settings in the country for children. With over 100 summers under our belt, Frost Valley is guided by our mission to build a healthy mind, body, and spirit for all. Children from all backgrounds come together to try exciting & new things in a safe environment while building friendships. All of our camping programs focus on character development through our 8 core values: Caring, Community, Diversity, Honesty, Inclusiveness, Respect, Responsibility, and Stewardship. Tiered pricing and financial assistance are available.
