REGISTER FOR CAMP
SCOUTS (5-8 YEAR OLD CAMPERS)
This is an excellent introduction to resident camping. This program is aimed at the needs of younger campers. The program is highly structured with a smaller counselor per camper ratio. Campers participate in many of the same activities as older campers, but are at camp for a much shorter stay. Campers arrive between 1-3 p.m. on Sunday. Campers have two full days of activities and spend two nights. Parents are invited to camp for dinner and closing ceremonies on Tuesday night.
EXPLORERS (7-9 YEAR OLD CAMPERS)
This wonderful program offers a smooth transition from Scouts to Rangers; it is a great introduction to the one-week Ranger session. This three-night program is similar in structure to the Scouts but adds a little more interaction with the older campers. Campers arrive between 9-10 a.m. on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday are full of activities. Parents arrive Saturday morning for the parent’s day award ceremony.
RANGERS (8-14 YEAR OLD CAMPERS)
Campers may come to camp for one-week or multiple weeks. The Ranger program stresses growth in spirit, mind, and body in a highly structured program. These campers will be introduced to new activities, opportunities and friendships. Each week campers are exposed to an entire spectrum of experiences ranging from individual and quiet devotional times to loud and exuberant group activities.
PIONEERS (13-14 YEAR OLDS)
We offer a special program for our older campers with activities that are geared toward teens. Pioneers will spend their week doing regular camp activities, as well as two out-of-camp day trips like white water canoeing, rappelling, skeet shooting, hiking, or even going to a water park. They will spend a night camping out and having a cookout. They will complete a service project that will benefit the camp. This program represents a great opportunity for personal growth and development, to make new friends, and of course, to have some serious fun!
LIT’S (LEADER IN TRAINING) (15 YEAR OLDS)
YMCA Camp Chandler’s Leader In Training program is a three-week camp for motivated individuals who are ready to work and play hard, and who demonstrate additional responsibility and maturity in accepting the challenges of leadership. Space in this program is limited and not all who apply are accepted. Young people interested should fill out an application online at our website. Once the application has been reviewed, an interview will be set up at camp with the applicant and his or her parents or guardian. After the interview is complete, a full explanation of the program will be presented by the camp director. Cost for this program is equal to a one-week summer camp session.
