Specialty Camps

In addition to traditional summer camps, the YMCA also offers a variety of specialty camps for youth of all ages. Develop a greater passion for the things you love, or try out something new! Check out our specialty camp options below.


Rock Climbing Mini Camps

Half-Day Special Interest Camp for ages 6 – 11  |  Visit our Rock Climbing page for dates and other details

Dig into the basics of indoor rock climbing and learn the “ropes” on our 32 foot indoor climbing wall! We’ll work on skills including safety, harnessing, knots, top rope climbing, bouldering, and more! Every week, we will learn something new and challenge our skills, with an emphasis on movement, technique, safety, trust and teamwork. PLUS, each Thursday, we’ll take a trip out to Camp Cormorant to challenge our knowledge and skills on the outdoor ropes course, and have a blast exploring camp!
