Programs at Chimney Corners Camp YMCA in Becket, MA

Traditional Program

The heart of our camp program is the traditional 4-week session. Campers live together with 7 or 8 other campers and two staff members in a rustic cabin. The campers spend each morning together as a group and do a different morning activity each day. Each camper participates in planning activities, keeping the cabin clean, and ensuring that the camp experience is positive for the entire group. By spending the full four weeks at camp, campers gain mastery of the camp program, make strong connections with others and build the confidence in their independence. We believe that campers that start with the four week program have the best chance.

Campers completing the 11th grade can apply to the Aides Program, our Leader-in-Training Program (LIT). This highly competitive program is designed to help young leaders transition from campers to staff, by providing a challenging and competitive leadership program. This final step provides participants with the skills and confidence necessary to assume a staff role and ensures our programs have well-trained staff for the future. The vast majority of the cabin staff at Chimney Corners Camp participated as both campers and LITs before becoming staff.
