We're more than just a camp

Camp Hazen is a child-centered community.  We focus on each individual and teach skills that kids will use forever. Whether it’s learning a new activity, making friends or becoming more resilient, independent and understanding,we know that campers return home inspired to live in a way that will make them proud.

We're a place where people connect and truly belong

There is no better feeling than that of coming home from camp having had the experience of a lifetime.  Year after year campers leave Camp Hazen having found their best friends.  And each summer, the joy of reuniting with counselors and old friends is one of life's greatest rewards.  Kids simply love Camp Hazen, and whether it is their first time or they are a lifelong Hazenite, campers find that they belong here more than any other place in the world.

Resident Camp: The Great Hazen Tradition

Camp Hazen has more than 90 years of making summers memorable for kids.  One of the reasons for this long-term success is the firm belief in maintaining the traditions and values that make campers want to come back year after year.  Campfires, ceremonies, singing, camping out under the stars, small cabin groups and a family-like community are as important as helping kids develop their character and confidence. 

Take a look a the First Time Campers page for more great information on what the Resident Camp is all about.

Tier Pricing Program

Realizing that families have differing abilities to pay, Camp Hazen YMCA has instituted a voluntary 4-tier pricing program for our Summer Resident Camp and Day Camp programs. Please take a moment to look at the tier descriptions and choose the tier that is most suitable for your family. All children will have the same experience no matter which tier a family is able to pay. The tier selected by a family will be kept confidential.

Tier 1

is based on the full cost of campers participating in the selected programs.  If you are able to pay this amount, please do so.  Thank you.

Tier 2

is a partially subsidized rate that will enable families that just can't afford the full cost of the camp program.  Please, choose this rate if your family has the need to receive a subsidized rate.

Tier 3

is a more heavily subsidized rate for families whose children would not be able to attend camp otherwise.  If you can not afford either of the higher rates, please pay this amount.

Tier 4

is a variable rate for families whose financial assistance need is greater than the subsidized rates above.  We provide more significant financial assistance to families that demonstrate need through our Financial Assistance Program.  If you need additional assistance, please choose this option and complete a Financial Assistance application.
