Overnight Camps at YMCA Camp Copneconic are where memories are made… along with lifelong friendships, self-confidence, and independence. Campers will unplug from technology and reconnect with nature, participating in a variety of traditional camp activities during each session!

Where needed, Camp Copneconic will continue to implement safety protocols to ensure that kids are able to safely interact again this summer.

Campers experience more than just the activities! They experience their troubles and insecurities washing away.
