YMCA Camp Watchaug is a 30 acre premier Day Camp on Watchaug Pond. Campers are having so much fun, they don’t realize they are learning important life skills along with swimming, boating, archery, climbing and much more!
Completely remodeled in 2011. Includes the Camp Office, spacious meeting and rainy day indoor space, fire-place, bathrooms and changing rooms. Not to mention an outdoor deck overlooking Watchaug Pond.
Arts & Crafts Center
Creativity abounds in this indoor area where campers travel at least once a week to see what amazing project the Arts & Crafts Director has planned for them.
Nature & Science Building
Most of our nature activities take place in the great outdoors. However, we also have informative displays and activities for rainy days that take place here.
Our youngest campers have their own space to play, learn and have fun.
Located right on Watchaug Pond, our H swimming dock, boating dock, water trampoline & playscape, sandy beach, sand volleyball court and boathouse all contribute to providing a FUN, safe waterfront experience for all!
Where we gather at the beginning and end of each day to sing songs, see skits and hear important announcements.
Archery, Low Ropes Course, High Ropes Course, Climbing Wall, Giant Swing and Zip Line
These all are part of “upper camp” where campers learn new skills and develop confidence through our “challenge by choice” programs in which counselors encourage campers to try new activities and step out of their comfort zones.
Puts Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
