My favorite thing in a whole entire world is Camp Combe.

This was our first summer and everything has been exactly as we
were told it would be...even better!

It’s hard to outgrow camp when it gets more fun every year! Your teen programs are perfect!

– Parent of an 8th grade girl

As a kid, I loved Camp Combe. Now I want to make camp just as awesome for my campers!

This was my son’s first truly successful mainstream experience —we couldn’t be happier!

My child comes home more mature and responsible after every trip. How can so much growth happen in just one summer?

This is a camp that celebrates kids being themselves. What could be better than that?

The energy! The care! The fun! Everything a kid could want.
I want to go to camp!

– Parent of an 11 yr old girl

Service Corps, especially Habitat for Humanity, had a huge impact on my son!

– Parent of a 7th grade boy

I'm not sure how you do it, but I don't think my boys have ever been this excited about anything!

Camp Combe is the coolest place I have ever been.

JR. COUNSELORS & JR. SPECIALISTS

making new friends, learning new skills

The Junior Counselor and Junior Specialist programs at Camp Combe are highly selective and require successful completion of our Counselor-in-Training Program (or a comparable community service experience) and three letters of recommendation. Junior Counselors are assigned to a specific age group and assist Counselors in leading games, running activities, fostering group cohesion, and supervising campers. Junior Specialists are assigned to an Activity Head, Specialty Camp Instructor or Adventure Specialist to learn about lesson-planning, running activities, and an area of focus.

These volunteer positions require 40 hours of staff training and a six week minimum commitment
(OK if non-contiguous). Please call the YMCA to request application materials. 845-526-0808

CARING. HONESTY. RESPECT. RESPONSIBILITY.
