Hartley Drive Family YMCA

Camp Pioneer at the Hartley YMCA

YMCA Summer Camp Programs focus on children learning new skills, making new friends, developing character and creating life-long, fun-filled memories! We offer two camp options that operate Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 6:00pm.

  • Camp Pioneer is for rising Kindergarten through 8th Grade. A typical day at Camp Pioneer includes activities like swimming, archery, basketball, arts and crafts, riflery and much more!
  • Our Counselor in Training (C.I.T.) Program is designed to allow teenagers (rising 9th and 10th Graders) opportunities to develop leadership skills and acquire the knowledge that will help prepare them to become an effective counselor.
  • C.I.T.s will work directly with the younger groups in Camp Pioneer. All C.I.Ts must complete the application and interview process.
