South Mountain YMCA

Summer Quest and Teen Adventure Camp

2021 information coming soon.

Summer Quest (Entering Grade 5 - 6)
Teen Adventure  (Entering Grade 7 - 9)
Summer Quest and Teen Adventure Camps are designed to strengthen decision-making skills, encourage social responsibility, and team work through challenging and fun character-building experiences.  These years are an exciting time learning to make good decisions and understanding the impact of choices.

We're on the move with terrific weekly trips to: Dorney Park, Camel Beach, Laser Tag, Dave and Busters, bowling, roller skating, museums and local beaches. We highlight making new friends, community service projects, special events and swim instruction. Staff are college-educated, fully trained and are positive role models for developing values in teens. Teen Campers attend three overnights, including a camp-out at Fairview Lake YMCA.

Parent Shout-Outs:

"My son is showing greater personal responsibility by cleaning up after himself, pitching in and clearing the dinner table without prompting and recognizing that he is a part of a whole unit."

"This year's camp was a success for our daughter. She had a great time and formed new friendships which I hope will continue throughout the school year."
