Here at Camp Mason, we say Camp Counts because for 120 years, we have welcomed campers to be a part of our caring, inclusive community where they are valued and can grow physically, emotionally, intellectually, morally and socially. We strive for excellence, relevance and innovation so that all our campers are empowered and improve their well-being. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve and we want children to know YMCA Camp Mason is a safe place for them to experience their journey.
Our proven programs and caring, trained counselors engage and encourage young people and deliver meaningful and memorable experiences that keep families coming back year after year after year.
