Camp 2021

Conveniently located at the Indian Valley YMCA in Ellington, Camp Indian Valley offers a beautiful outdoor play space and wooded wetland nature preserve, all with the safety and comfort that comes with a full-facility branch. Daily swim, archery, sports, Gaga, arts and crafts and more make this a perfect camp.

 

We are so excited to see camp resume for 2021. In 2020 we learned a lot and had no Positive COVID-19 cases traced back to Camp Indian Valley!  We are ready to do that again. Camp 2021 will be about unplugging and reconnecting to the environment and the in-person hands-on experiences. We will be running camp from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM (see below for a sample schedule). Campers at Camp Indian Valley will have the opportunity to do some incredible activities this year. We want campers to have an immersive experience.

Campers that attend our Sports and Arts sessions will get a traditional camp experience. With a variety of sports activities from kick ball, soccer, basketball, to Disk Golf, Gaga, and so many others. Campers will have the opportunity to learn some of the basics of these activities while making new friends. Campers will also get to do some fun craft activities from nature art, painting, and bracelet making, to so many other fun arts and crafts activities. In the Sports and Arts sessions, campers will have the opportunity to swim daily in one of the two indoor pools. Camp Indian valley also has a low ropes course and an archery range!

 

We are planning on running our Leaders in Training (LIT) Program this summer. This program is designed for Teens 14-15 years old that want to learn more about camp and how to be a good leader. Applying for the program is not necessary! There are two 4-week sessions and one 2-week session. The 2-week session is by invitation only and does not coast anything for the camper to attend. The 4-week sessions coast $400 and campers must be able to attend at least three weeks of the program to enroll.
