Traditional Sleepaway Programs

Future Leaders Grow Here!

Honesty. Respect. Caring. Responsibility.

It’s what we teach future leaders at New York’s YMCA Sleepaway Camp in Huguenot, NY

For Boys and Girls Ages 7-15
One and Two Week Sessions,
July 2-August 25, 2017


Seeking a summer chock-full of happiness, excitement, adventure and memories?
We’ve got it right here at the YMCA Summer Sleepaway Camp.

Located in nearby Huguenot, NY in the Shawangunk Mountains, our camp is perfectly situated to offer campers a chance to go rafting on the Delaware River, learn to swim in one of our three lakes, blaze a trail through our 1,000 forested acres, sing and dance on a stage, code a dazzling computer program, master the finer points of volleyball, fly down a zip line and much, much more.

At the same time, our camp counselors teach future leaders how to grow into responsible people. Through our wide range of outdoor and indoor activities, kids gain confidence and skills necessary to take them through life. Campers from around the world offer the opportunity to make forever friends from far and wide. And with nutritious meals served up daily with fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats and vegetarian choices, everyone enjoys a healthy meal.

Our two camps provide just the right level of activies and challenges for kids:

McAlister is for ages 7-11 and introduces children to the sleepaway camping experience.

Talcott is for ages 11-15 and offers a wider range of preferences for teens. 

Has your child become “too old” for camp?  Impossible!  Rising 16 & 17 year olds who want to learn what it takes to make a positive difference in the lives of children are encouraged to contact Marit Olsen (molsen@ymcanyc.org) to learn more about our staff development program.

So what are you waiting for? Spend a summer with us! For more information about the New York YMCA’s Sleepaway Camp, programs, rates and more, click on the menus for more information.
