Camp Combe is the coolest place I have ever been.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

– Parent of a male camper, age 12

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

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

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

BIG CAMP

Rising Grades 1st-8th

The heart and soul of Camp Combe, “Big Camp” is a traditional day camp program that has one overriding objective-FUN. Grouped in huddles of children the same gender and age, campers hike, make crafts, explore nature, sing, swim, and play games of all sorts. As in all our programs, the staff work to teach and reward the YMCA core values of honesty, respect, responsibility, and caring. One week sessions.
