ABOUT CAMP CORY
Camp Cory, a branch of the YMCA of Greater Rochester, has been serving families for more than 90 years. Situated right on the shores of Keuka Lake, camp offers families a variety of different activities and experiences that they can’t get anywhere else.
Benefits of Sending Your Child to Camp Cory
Camp Cory gives your child the opportunity to meet new kinds of people in a safe environment, free of the judgments and expectations of the outside world. In a community free of electronics like cell phones, campers are focused on interacting with one another in a natural setting. Our staff of committed counselors are dedicated to making sure that your child has the time of their lives, focusing on the areas of achievement, independence, friendship, and belonging.
