Countdown to Summer Camp


Camp Combe YMCA Programs

This is our first experience with Camp Combe and we are blown away!! Our boys are having the summer of their lives thanks to your amazing staff. We are so grateful- especially in these difficult times- that our kids get a bit of fun and “normalcy” at this camp. Thank you so much!!
Warmest regards, M & C M

MinicampAges 4-5  (PreK-Kindergarten)

Our Mini Camp program is carefully designed to blend the structure and support of a traditional
pre-school setting with the wonderful world of summer camp.  Small group sizes (8 children per group), low ratios, and staff carefully chosen for their experience working with young children ensure that all campers have a nurturing, successful and very fun first camp experience.  Activities include swimming, nature education, arts and crafts, free play, music, drama and games. “Big Camp” activities like morning assembly, sports, and hiking are introduced in a developmentally sensitive way. Our Mini Camp facilities include a  large cabin with indoor play space and covered eating area and an enclosed natural playground and giant hillside slide.

Big Camp – Rising Grades 1ST-8TH

The heart and soul of Camp Combe, “Big Camp” is a traditional day camp program that has one overriding objective – FUN. During these 1 week sessions, campers hike, make crafts, explore nature, sing, swim, and play games of all sorts. As in all our programs, the staff work to teach and reward the YMCA core values of honesty, respect, responsibility, and caring.
Berkshire Village – rising 1st & 2nd graders
Himalayan Village – rising 3rd & 4th graders
Andes Village – rising 5th & 6th graders
Appalachian Village – rising 7th & 8th graders
Swim lessons are included as part of the program for our campers age 4 to rising 2nd graders.

LIT Program – Rising Grades 7TH – 9TH THROUGH 13 YEARS OF AGE

Our  Leaders in Training Program is designed to begin to develop leadership skills for teens here at camp. This program takes elements from the Y’s national Leaders Club program as well as teaching skills to be a great Camp Combe Staff one day. While LIT’s cannot be hands-on with campers just yet, they utilize tools such as role playing, discussion, and team building in order to develop lifelong leadership skills.
This program is a one week commitment and runs for the first 6 weeks of the summer.

CIT Program –
Must Be 14 or Older and Entering, at Least, the 9TH Grade

The first step in our rigorous staff development program, the CIT program is a challenging and rewarding introduction to the world of camp counseling. Combining formal leadership training, service learning opportunities, and daily practical experience working with small groups of children, CIT’s acquire skills to make them more responsible, creative, and mature. Position requires a mandatory training session and a two week minimum commitment.
CIT Applicants should COMPLETE AN ONLINE APPLICATION. Once complete they will need to contact the office to set up an interview and have one, unrelated, adult complete a reference form. The reference form link will be emailed to you upon completion of your online application.

E has had the best time at camp, the first day she came home and proudly announced she made a friend and announced her name. It warmed my heart to see her happy and excited to have a place to go and enjoy her summer instead of being cooped up while mommy and daddy worked. Your staff has been absolutely amazing, from drop off to pick up with their friendly waves welcoming us and as we depart. She has grown so much during her time with every bead she earns, or every award she receives for camper of the day or week. I could have not chosen a better place for her to enjoy her summer. Thank you for providing a safe environment for her to have fun and learn important life sessions that will stay with her the rest of her life. So much pride in her face while she holds her award and her spirit stick!!
