During the summer months Big Cove YMCA Camp operates a residential camp for boys and girls ages 7 to 17. Since 1889 we have been providing young people with positive experiences “that lasts a lifetime.” We offer three two-week sessions and two one-week sessions for youth aged 7 to 15. For more information on these sessions please visit the Junior and Senior links. We offer two four-week Leadership Development Programs for youth aged 15 to 17. For more information on these programs please refer to the Leadership link.
