BENEFITS OF CAMP
YMCA Camp Gorham provides the opportunity for children from all backgrounds to come together and unplug and connect. Through the camp experience your camper will become more resilient, develop decision-making skills, and challenge their comfort level in a structured, safe environment – emerging with a positive sense of self and confidence in “who” they are. The camp experience is proven to enhance social intelligence through achievement, independence, friendship and belonging.
INDEPENDENCE: Camp life gives every camper the chance to shine by allowing them to be responsible for making decisions as well as taking care of themselves.
BELONGING: Camp offers something for everyone and everyone has something to offer camp. Our community at Camp Gorham provides an opportunity for children to be part of Camp, part of the magic that is Camp Gorham.
ACHIEVEMENT: Camp Gorham’s activities help campers to not only achieve age appropriate standards in each area but help campers to feel a personal sense of accomplishment through trying and learning new things.
FRIENDSHIP: Camp provides a place where children can meet others from diverse backgrounds and form friendships that will last a lifetime.
