Teen Camp (Grades 7-12)
A JUDGEMENT FREE CAMP WHERE TEENAGERS CAN TRULY BE THEMSELVES
Smack dab in the middle of summer is a week of summer camp specifically for teenagers ages 12-17. This week of camp is designed to meet the needs and interests of teens, while focusing on teamwork and community. TEEN Camp is the one camp that no camper in middle school or high school wants to miss. This is the only week of camp where we will run Knocker Ball as an evening program and go to the swimming pool for a night swim. TEEN Camp is all about forging friendships and helping teenagers discover who they really are.
Early Bird Registration ends Dec. 31
“YMCA Camp Benson so special because it’s the one place where you can 100% be yourself. Camp has helped me find who I want to be.”
– TEEN Week Camper
Each day teen campers have the freedom to choose which activities they want to do in the morning and afternoon. The Free Camper Activity Time or FCAT is where campers have the opportunity to do multiple activities at their leisure with their cabin mates and friends. During teen week campers get two FCAT activity periods instead of one. Here are just some of the activities your camper can choose to participate in.
“I’m more outgoing, adventurous, weirder than I usually am and more responsible because of camp. I am more used to change than I’ve ever been before.”- TEEN Week Camper
