Tween Extreme Camp (Entering Grades 4 – 7)
Expanded to Include 7th Grade!
Tween Camp is a camp created just for our older campers! This camp is built on the foundations of YNavigators and the Y’s Core Values of Honesty, Caring, Respect, and Responsibility. Tween Camp offers opportunity for our Tween campers to participate in engaging experiences, skill-building opportunities, leadership development, and fun, challenging activities specifically geared toward this older age group.
Tween Camp’s daily schedule is structured similarly to YNavigators. Camper drop-off and pick-up is at the Y, but Tween Campers will move off-site each morning for their own set of activities. Campers will have the opportunity to develop new skills in the interest area of their choosing, learn to lead younger campers in games, attend Tween-only field trips, and participate in fun activities made just for their age.
