My daughter loves camp so much she is disappointed on the weekend. "Camp Combe today?" is her first waking question!

– Parent of a six year old camper

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

– Parent of two campers, age 7 & 9

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

Camp Combe is the coolest place I have ever been.

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

– Parent of 9th grade boy

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

– Camp Combe Junior Counselor

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

– Parent of a male camper, age 12

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

– Parent of a 7th grade boy

I didn’t realize the importance of camp until I sent my kids to Combe

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

Female camper, age 6

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

– Parent of an 8th grade girl

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

– Parent of an eight year old camper

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

Culinary Camp

rising 3rd - 8th graders

Rising grades 3-8

In each exciting 1 week session, budding young chefs will have the chance to learn kitchen skills and the art of cooking from a culinary professional in our full facility kitchen.  Small group sizes will make this program a true exploration of meal planning, preparation, and of course…tasting!  In keeping with the YMCA’s Health Living motto your child will learn nutritional facts such as the difference between good carbs and bad carbs and the benefits of garden to table foods by exploring the Camp Combe garden. As with all our specialty camps your camper gets “best of both worlds”, Culinary Camp campers will spend 2 hours exploring the culinary arts and the rest of their day engaging in their favorite Camp Combe activities:  morning assembly, swimming, archery, field games, and so much more!

If your camper has dietary restrictions please see our dates sheet for our Gluten Free and Allergy Aware weeks. These are the only 2 weeks that the menu will cater to campers with food allergies. Also please be aware that, while we do our best to sanitize everything used daily, the same utensils and pots and pans are used all summer.

For a sample of previous year’s recipes please see below.
