Horse, Fine Arts, Aquatics, & Leadership Camps

One of the first things campers can do after arrival at YMCA Camp Pendalouan, is to choose their activities for the week.

From Archery to Crafts, Mt. Biking to Drama, campers have several options to choose from. They get a chance every day to learn and grow in these areas and on Thursdays, they get a chance to experience a two-hour block in the morning or afternoon, so that they can do extended activities that can't be done in a normal activity time-frame.

However, we also have four Specialty Camps that allow  even more time in certain program areas! Parents can sign up their campers for Specialty Camps during registration. These lucky campers get two hours each day (and four on Thursday!) to spend in their Specialty Camps. Read on to hear about our Horse, Fine Arts, Aquatics, and Leadership Camps!

Campers spend half of each day on a horse, at the barn, and on special trail rides. Work hard, have fun, ride horses, have fun, shovel manure, have fun! Available during all resident camp sessions.

FINE ARTS CAMP (ages 10-15)
Campers are exposed to a wide variety of art mediums including ceramics, painting with acylics, and drawing with pastels, charcoal and pencils. Available during resident camp sessions 1 and 5.

AQUATICS CAMP (ages 10-15)
Each morning or afternoon brings a different aquatics focus such as kayaking, canoeing, snorkeling in Turtle Bay, tubing, and swimming. Available during resident camp sessions 2, 4, and 5.

LEADERS-IN-TRAINING CAMP (for 15-year olds)
Each July, we offer experienced campers who are 15-years old a Leaders-in-Training program. This six-day experience allows these students to build a close and respectful community while enhancing their own positive attributes and leadership skills. Available during resident camp session 4 only.

Last year, many of these Specialiy Camps had waiting lists!
