Day Camp for Boys

2018 Dates and rates coming soon


YMCA Camp Abnaki offers a week day camp program for boys who are currently in grades K - 4.  During the week, campers will have a chance to experience many of the great activities camp has to offer.  Our dedicated day camp staff guide the campers throughout the day.  A great camp experience helps boys try new things and make new friends in a safe, welcoming environment.

In a typical day, boys experience a mix of small and large group games, swimming, and other great activities such as archery, arts & crafts, rock climbing, and more.  Lunch and an afternoon snack is provided at camp.  We also provide bus transportation (see more below) in partnership with YWCA Camp Hochelaga. 




YMCA Camp Abnaki offers transportation to and from camp for day campers.  Each day, a bus with a member of the Camp Abnaki staff will travel from the Essex High School through the Islands and up to camp.  Parents can also choose to drop off or pick up their sons directly at camp.  See the registration form for more details.  We are offering transportation in partnership with YWCA Camp Hochelaga.

Day camp tuition includes a $10 per week credit for the camp store!  Day campers will also receive a free camp t-shirt at the end of their week (one shirt per session attended).

Recognizing that families have differing abilities to pay, we offer three pricing tiers for campers.


-Tier C  helps us to cover long-term depreciation and growth.


-Tier B  reflects our operating expenses including repairs and maintenance.


-Tier A  is our historically low rate and does not fully cover camp operating expenses.


This program is voluntary and offers an opportunity for families to support the true cost of operating the camp.  The tier you choose in no way influences your camperís experience.  Financial assistance is available for those who request it.


Day Camp Registration is currently open.

Registration is on a first-come basis.  A deposit of $50 per week is required at the time of registration. 

Final payment for 2017 sessions May 12.
