Camp Hazen YMCA is committed to helping youth develop valuable life skills through camping experiences that build healthy bodies, open minds and awakened spirits. Camp Hazen provides children with a community of positive role models who nurture children to ensure that they are successful, have fun, make friends and develop life skills such as independence and leadership.
“The camp staff are the key ingredient at a great camp. They are vital to the success of a child’s experience,” said Camp Director, Danita Ballantyne. “At Camp Hazen YMCA, the staff are carefully chosen based on their prior experience, teaching ability, and maturity. They are expected to be positive role models, responsible and FUN. The majority are former Hazen campers or returning staff and are from as close as Chester, CT and as far away as Australia.”
Camp Hazen YMCA is located on Cedar Lake and offers traditional camp activities like swimming, arts and crafts and campfires – along with more unique programs including a Skate Park, Alpine Tower, Mountain Biking and Windsurfing. ALL activities are designed to ensure that campers are having fun, making friends and learning valuable life lessons which are the core ingredients of the camp experience.
Camp Hazen YMCA believes the summer camp experience is a vital part of a child’s development and offers a tier pricing program to make camp affordable for all. For more information, contact Danita Ballantyne at 860-526-9529 or visit www.camphazenymca.org
