Camp Counts

Camp Mason

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 could go on and on about the benefits of YMCA Camp Mason, but our campers say it best!

“I made so many new friends and now I know I can do anything!”

– 14 year old girl

Our schedule allows campers to try new things and improve their skills while developing confidence, gaining a sense of independence, having fun and making lifelong friends. We hear from so many campers that their camp friends bring out the very best in them.

“I come to camp for all of the great activities.”

We offer archery, swimming, boating, arts and crafts, drama, music, a climbing tower, zipline, dance, digital photography and movie making, basketball and court sports, a skate boarding park, mountain biking, hiking, aerial silks and countless other activities. Campers can even sign up for FREE off-site trips to explore our fantastic natural surroundings. There is something for everyone!

“Camp Mason is my home away from home!”

– 10 year old boy

Campers stay in comfortable cabins with each cabin determined by age and with two counselors, ensuring there is always a caring, watchful eye on your child. Our staff, from around the US and the world, are professional, trained and prepared to mentor campers throughout their stay. By treating each child with dignity, we teach and live our values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, integrity and inclusion throughout the camp day.

“At camp I can be myself.”

– 8 year old girl

98 percent of our camper parents report that their child felt a sense of belonging at camp, and 93 percent of parents indicated that their child’s self-image improved as a result of attending YMCA Camp Mason. By connecting youth with positive adult role models and encouraging the development of independence and strong values, your child will thrive at camp.
