Camp Odyssey
Entering Kindergarten - finished 6th grade

Camp Odyssey day camp is held at the Northwest Family YMCA. Prepare for an adventurous summer focused on lasting friendships, accomplishment and belonging. Campers engage in activities promoting socialization, self-esteem in a fun, positive environment and develop character skills as they learn and work to earn character beads. Activities include swim lessons, activity swim, field games, arts and crafts, team building, STEM, camp songs, and special events and guests. Since campers swim most days, in lessons and recreational swim, they will gain confidence and swim skills. Everyone will make long-lasting friendships and memories!


Ages 13-15

Our Leaders-In-Training (LIT) Program is designed as a training program where kids will work on a community service project and shadow counselors throughout the summer while they learn skills like communication, responsibility, time management, and more! LITs must attend a minimum of 5 weeks of camp (and a maximum of 7 weeks). Many of our LITs return as summer camp counselors in future summers. 

Camp Horizon at Elden Elementary
Ages 5-10

Camp Horizon day camp is held at Elden Elementary school in Baldwinsville.

Campers at Camp Horizon get to do a little bit of everything! Groups explore the campus nature trails, splash in the rain, create works of art. Engaging weekly themes keep the campers curious about the world around them. Campers take part in activities promoting socialization, self-esteem and asset building in a fun, positive environment. Activities include field games, arts and crafts, team building, STEM, special events and guests, nature exploration- hikes and ecology, and much more! Conveniently located in the village of Baldwinsville, this small camp is typically a great fit for campers who may be overwhelmed by a large facility camp. Everyone will make long lasting friendships, memories!


*Please be advised that Camp Horizon does not offer additional before or after camp care options.
