what is adventure camp?

YMCA Camp Coniston’s Adventure Camp offers participants the opportunity to have exciting adventures in spectacular locations. The combination of camaraderie and activities makes this a program that campers will remember for a lifetime.

One-week trips in New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts and Quebec focus on climbing, hiking, whitewater rafting and biking in beautiful settings. Our dedicated and enthusiastic leaders are experienced and undergo a week of training prior to Camp.

These trips are scheduled to maximize your opportunity to pair one or more adventure programs with a Resident Camp Session.
