The Frost Valley YMCA tradition is an engaging, affordable summer camp experience for children ages 7-16 at our 6,000-acre camp in the heart of the forever wild Catskill Forest Preserve.
Lodges nestled near mountain trails and wide green spaces create a special world where kids journey on every scale, from spending first nights away from home and bonding with new friends to mountain hikes, waterfront fun and all-camp traditions and games. Non-competitive activities in a safe, nurturing environment model our values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and emphasize environmental awareness. Children learn confidence in a supportive atmosphere that fosters skill development and memories that last a lifetime.
Our roots reach back to 1901 as one of the nation's first overnight camps and over a century later, we remain true to the Y mission and our commitment to bring children of all backgrounds and abilities together in an enriching, life-changing summer community.
Frost Valley offers age-based sleepaway camp for children ages 7-15 in (4) two-week camp sessions from June-August; two and three-week Adventure Trips for kids ages 11-16.
