Become Part of the Magic of Camp: June 4-10, 2017
Overnight camp is about discovery and adventures. Kids have the opportunity to explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence, and make lasting friendships and memories. And, of course, it’s fun too.
Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities. Camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all amidst the fun of camp fires, rock climbing, canoeing, archery, talent shows, and meaningful relationships. Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.
Program & Facilities
Camp Fitch is located on 450 beautiful acres on Lake Erie at North Springfield, PA. Campers are divided into girls camp and boys camp. Each has a recreation lodge for indoor activities, showers, and modern plumbing. Campers live with six other campers and a counselor in one of Camp Fitch's unique cabents.
Campers (ages 8-13): Throughout each camp day, campers participate in several activities include sports & games, swimming, boating, nature, archery, crafts, and much more!
Campers arrive on Sunday afternoon and get picked up Saturday morning.
Campers (ages 14-15): Our older campers will partake in traditional camp activities and will also develop leadership skills and have some fun optional late-night activities. Campers arrive on Sunday afternoon and get picked up Saturday morning.
Our staff consists of full-time program directors at the Lake County YMCA, college students, and local high school students. The staff is trained in several areas and are chosen based on their leadership abilities, experience working with children, and personal character values. All staff members are volunteers and are at camp to provide your child with a safe, fun week!
