YMCA Camp Abnaki offers a week day camp program for boys who have completed 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, and more. Lunch and an afternoon snack are provided by camp. The bus starts at the University Mall in South Burlington and stops at The Chimney Corners park and ride and the South Hero Town Hall.

Cost to Attend: Recognizing that families have differing abilities to pay, we offer three pricing tiers for campers per week.

Tier A, $350 Tier B, $375, Tier C, $400
  • Tier A is our historically low rate and does not fully cover camp operating expenses.
  • Tier B reflects our operating expenses including repairs and maintenance.
  • Tier C helps us to cover long-term depreciation and growth.
Your choice of tier 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 camper’s experience. Financial assistance is available for those who request it. Day camp tuition includes a $15 per week credit for the camp store! Day campers will also receive a free gift from the camp store each session they attend.

Registration

Registration is on a first-come basis. There is a non-refundable deposit of $50 for every day camp session. Final payment for all day camp sessions is due on May 3, 2022. Click here to sign up online.
