The Hamden/North Haven YMCA believes all kids have great potential and deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve.
And while these are unprecedented times, times that challenge us individually and as a community on many levels, Camp Mountain Laurel day camp provides kids with a safe, healthy, familiar, and fun-filled environment for them to explore, build confidence, develop skills and make lasting friendships and memories, so they can grow as individuals and leaders. For families, day camp offers a peace of mind knowing that your child is in a safe and enriching place.
The health and safety of all Y campers, our team and our volunteers are our first and foremost priority. New safety protocols and sanitization procedures have been adopted to maintain the highest standards. CCCY 2021 Day Camp Safety Plan
