We are extremely excited to start another summer of camp at Ingersoll. Based on unprecedented registration numbers we understand that families are also ready for summer camp! Every program we are running this summer is either limited or closed. We encourage all families to register online even if it is just on the waitlist. We often experience changes to registrations as camp gets closer and we notify families on the wait lists immediately if there is open space. Please call 860-342-2267 for registration assistance.
Covid 19 Adjustments at YMCA Camp Ingersoll
As times continue to change we understand that camp will need to change a bit as well. We anticipate adjustments to Covid 19 being limited to permanent changes that now are standard for YMCA Camp Ingersoll. We will continue to monitor changes in the current situation and as always, we will follow the guidelines set forth by the State of Connecticut, the Office Of Early Childhood, and the Chatham Health District. We will continue to update this going forward so please be sure to check back regularly. Please call 860-342-2267 with any questions.

FAMILY NIGHT DATES
Family nights are a wonderful way to connect families to camp while meeting counselors and spending quality time as a family. All of our Family Nights are Open Camp Nights. This means the waterfront, boating, high ropes, and archery are all open. Almost all of our counselors are available to meet and talk to during this night, but sometimes counselors do have to work a second job or have prior obligations. Family Night dates are:
Thursday, June 23rd
Thursday, July 7th
Thursday, July 21st
Thursday, August 11th
WHAT WE DO AT CAMP
Our camp day consists of eight 45 minute periods shared among swim lessons, specialty areas, lunch, free swim, and counselor-planned activities. All groups visit one specialty area a day. Trained facilitators lead each area in fun and engaging activities to promote skill and character development. Swim lessons take place every morning for Traditional Camps and a few Specialty Camps.
After lunch, every group participates in free swim. Campers can choose to swim or play in the recreation area. Counselor-led camp games and activities are based on age, interest, and availability in the schedule. Feel free to ask your camper's counselor about the weekly schedule when you receive your second-day phone call!
