The Y provides a safe, fun and welcoming environment for campers to express themselves, try new activities, learn new skills, be creative, make lasting friendships, and have a blast! Our camp programs features a variety of traditional, sports, S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics), travel, and teen camps. Join us for one or more weeks or all summer long. Full-day, half-day and extended day programs are available for campers ages 3-15. We offer programs in Garwood, Mountainside and Westfield. All Westfield Area Y camps are accredited by the American Camp Association meeting up to 300 standards for health, safety and program quality.
Every member of our camp staff receives over 20 hours of pre-camp training including certification in CPR for the Professional Rescuer and First Aid with EpiPen administration as well as asthma inhaler training, anti-bullying, behavior management and more. We also have a full-time EMT on staff during the camp season. The Y camp curriculum is structured to promote teamwork, enhance self-esteem and build skills. We incorporate the Y core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility into all that we do. BRING ON SUMMER!
