Summer Camp

At Camp Chief Hector YMCA, children and youth belong, grow, thrive and lead. In our safe, positive and encouraging environment, young people learn about teamwork, making choices, social skills, responsibility, ability to take risks/realize personal limits, independence and finding their place in the world—leading to increased self-esteem, confidence, creativity, self-sufficiency and leadership skills.
