Camping at the Y offers an Experience for children and teens, not just care.
Exploring nature, swimming, shooting bows & arrows and making new friends are just some aspects of the experience of participating in Day Camp. As summer approaches, the Hamden/North Haven Y reminds parents that camping is a unique and invaluable experience for children and teens.
