We are intentional in every element of program design to help your child progress along the journey to becoming the very best version of themselves. While maintaining the broader Y mission of being a camp “For All,” we put into practice our Judeo-Christian principles through our 5 Core Values – Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, Caring and Faith. These words mean different things to different people from all backgrounds, and we highlight one value each day to discover what it means to our campers. We live and explore these values and spend time throughout our week together in reflection and conversation as we strengthen a child’s understanding of their own value system.
Camp is full of structured challenges for your child. These challenges come from all directions, whether it be leaving home for the first time, trying new activities, encountering barriers to success, making their own decisions, setting goals, or handling conflict in the cabin. All of our counselors are trained in guiding your camper through those opportunities to become a more confident, independent, resilient young person. We seek out the moments to make a difference, and that’s where the most incredible growth can be found. We know that YMCA Camp Cullen will have a lasting and meaningful impact on your child’s life.
