YMCA Summer Overnight Camp

With so many distractions, youth aren’t spending enough time outdoors. Through camping, children and teens explore nature, become a community and develop confidence, independence, and leadership skills. Camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all amidst the fun of campfires, games, and meaningful relationships. Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper. We offer two overnight camps in the Wasatch National Forest for your child to experience adventure and excitement.

Mill Hollow

For over 60 years Mill Hollow has been THE environmental education center for Utah.YMCA Mill Hollow carries forward that rich tradition of summer camp: skits, songs, campfires, s’mores, arts and crafts, hiking, and so much more while campers connect with the natural sciences through outdoor education and exploration. With three-day and week-long programs, Mill Hollow serves youth ages 7-17 by turning Utah’s mountain landscape into an outdoor laboratory where campers have the opportunity to experience the natural sciences while getting a little muddy, making new friends, and having a whole lot of fun.

Camp Roger

At Camp Roger, kids develop outdoor skills in a structured small group setting. Campers will grow in independence, responsibility, and confidence as they are guided through the camp experience by dedicated trained staff.  Each week is themed to captivate youth in new and exciting ways. In addition to traditional camp, we offer specialty camps that allow campers to emphasize particular activities such as arts or horseback riding.
 

 

Leadership Programs

 
The YMCA of Northern Utah partners with Summit Journeys to provide adventure leadership programs for youth ages 14-17. The YMCA and Summit Journeys have teamed up to provide a new and innovative curriculum for the Leaders in Training and Counselors in Training programs. These programs train youth to be leaders in outdoor spaces, as well as in their personal lives at home. Our joint programs offer youth opportunities to explore lessons in leadership through self-reflection, group dynamics, and resilience in the face of challenge.
 
Additionally, our leadership programs deepen participants connection and awareness of the outdoors through lessons in biology, local ecology, astronomy, and local flora and fauna identification.
