Starter Camp

Sunday, June 11 - Friday, June 16, 2023

A One Week Memory Maker. 

YMCA Camp Sea Gull and YMCA Camp Seafarer offer a one-week overnight camp program for kids ages 6 – 9, called Starter Camp.

As its name implies, Starter Camp is for our youngest campers and is a nurturing introduction to the world of overnight camp.

Counselors walk campers around from activity to activity to make sure they are exposed to every activity Camp has to offer. For the first part of the week, campers stay in cabin groups. Once they become comfortable and familiar with their surroundings, campers are given the opportunity to choose their activities and where they go. Our 3:1 camper to staff ratio enables us to guide your children with a mentoring eye, as they explore our Land and Sea activities and gain independence.

We say just being away from home for five nights and making it to Friday is a huge accomplishment for Starter Campers. It's a fun, friendly, engaging week, designed to get campers introduced to the world of overnight camping in a safe, structured, supportive environment.
