Beyond the beautiful setting and fun-filled days, camp also provides a wonderful opportunity for kids to unplug, explore, and make new friends. Small groups and low staff-to-camper ratios allow children to develop close bonds and to feel a true sense of belonging. Our staff, carefully chosen for their maturity and ability to be excellent role models, work hard to teach and reward the YMCA core values of honesty, respect, responsibility, and caring.
Our developmental focus ensures that camp changes with the changing developmental needs of your child. The perfect mix of fun, support and challenge ensures that Camp Huguenot is a place they never outgrow!
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 groups sizes (6 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. “Kids Camp” activities like morning assembly, sports and hiking are introduced in a developmentally sensitive way.
Grouped by gender and age, Kids Camp campers enjoy a fun-filled, action-packed day beginning with our rousing morning assembly where they are not only allowed, but encouraged to be noisy and active. Campers cheer, sing, and root for their counselors and huddle-mates in goofy challenges and skits as they compete for the coveted spirit stick. From there, a wide range of activities await including everything from archery and GaGa to candle- making, to swimming and canoeing, to playing traditional sports like soccer and whiffle ball. Even rainy days are packed with fun as our 18,000 square-foot educational building provides plenty of indoor space for both active and quiet play.
We recognizes that as they get older, teens crave independence while needing a structured, safe environment. Our daily schedule gives teens the opportunity to explore activities that interest them while growing their skills in specific areas. Our counselors focus on fostering responsibility, confidence, and leadership skills among campers. Better still, every session offers our oldest campers the opportunity to participate in a trip or day-long event or day trip designed especially for them. Past excursions have included a day of rafting on the Delaware, a day hike in Bushkill Falls, or a night under the stars right here at camp.
The first step in our rigorous staff development program, the Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Program at Camp Huguenot 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, CITs acquire skills to make them more responsible, creative, and mature. This position requires a mandatory day of training and a minimum two week commitment.
Teens interested in the CIT program must complete an application, an interview, and provide one letter of reference. For more information download an application, please click here.
