What we're all about...

Since 1901, YMCA Camp Jewell has been a leader in summer camping. One of the main reasons for our continuing success is our ability to attract and select a high quality staff. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our staff, which often represents 20+ states and 15+ foreign countries. Or 180 staff members see to the needs of our 380 summer campers. Nine campers and two college age counselors and program specialist make up each cabin group, giving your child the opportunity for individual attention. Our counselors and program specialist are selected from colleges around the country based on their maturity and ability to be a positive role model for your child. Through our staff, over 25 program options are offered to our campers. Weather swimming in a crystal clear Triangle Lake, taking an overnight camp out on Sunrise Mountain, challenging another cabin to a team sport, spending the afternoon with our naturalist or challenging the 'high ropes coursesî, our campers spend fun filled days at Camp Jewell. Retreats & conferences accepted.
