Our four Big Cove YMCA Camp programs are designed to help youth grow as individuals while promoting cooperation and teamwork with others in a safe, supportive community. The YMCA’s philosophy of spirit, mind and body, helps to guide our programs in enhancing self-awareness, confidence, trust and responsibility.

We provide a wide variety of exciting, interactive programs and ensure that there is a little something for everyone. Campers and senior staff work together with our counselors to design weekly schedules with a balance of cabin group activities and all camp programs.
