Welcome to Camp Sloane YMCA
Why we love it
Good to know
Camp Sloane YMCA is everything kids are looking for in a summer camp. First is the beautiful camp setting with views of the Berkshires and beyond – kids love being ‘unplugged’ and having the experience of being surrounded by this level of nature. Then there’s the amazing choice of activities – everything from sailing to horseback riding to climbing and dancing. There is so much for campers to choose from, and their days will be filled with fun activities and great new friends, while their nights will be filled with fireside stories, lightning bugs, and s’mores. Sleepaway camp should always be this good, and counselors from all over the world are excited to welcome your child to Camp Sloane this summer!
We are a raised platform tent camp! These 'cabins-with-canvas-walls' provide the most authentic camp experience for your child. Each tent has 1 or 2 counselors and up to 7 campers and they are complete with bunk beds and plenty of room for everyone's luggage.. Living in a village of 6-7 tents give our campers the experience of the magic of the outdoors all while making incredible new friends. Every village has bathrooms and showers within the vilalge.
Campers will build their own program by choosing weekly electives - there are dozens to choose from. Each morning campers will enjoy 3 elective periods where they are focusing on skill development, participation and of course fun! In the afternoon campers enjoy a free swim period at the pool and lake as well as a 5th period where they get to choose an adevturous activty that they will do with their bunk-mates.
