Camp Hazen YMCA Summer Camp Open House Sunday, October 9

On Sunday, October 9, Camp Hazen YMCA will host an Open House from 2-4 p.m.   Families are encouraged to attend to learn more about summer opportunities for children.   Now is the time to plan for the summer of 2012 and research the right camp for your child.  Camp Director, Kath Davies, states “Attending an Open House provides a valuable opportunity for families to meet the Camp Directors and see the facilities to determine if Camp Hazen is the right choice for their family.”

Located on Cedar Lake in Chester, Camp Hazen YMCA offers one and two week session of both day and resident camp.  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.   Campers may choose 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 will not only have fun, but also learn how to get along with others, feel part of a community and become confident in trying new things both at camp and at home and school after camp.

When asked why she sent her child to Camp Hazen YMCA, a camper parent reported, “Generation “Pop Culture” kids today need a wholesome experience like one provided at Camp Hazen!!! No focus on mastering gadgets, instead, developing important life skills….socialization, coping, independence and confidence, to name a few. Terrific role models at Camp Hazen!!!”

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
