SLEEP AWAY

CAMP

Sleep Away Camp is the perfect introduction for children ages 7 to 15 into the Wilderness Center’s summer camp programming. Keenly aware of the different stages of youth development, our program provides age appropriate activities to foster self-exploration, challenge, and achievement. Our Sleep Away Camp program serves a highly diverse camper population, giving campers an opportunity to live and connect with children from various countries and cultures. At Sleep Away Camp, children embark on a personal quest, enjoying activities of their choice from water sports, our adventure ropes course, crafts, performing arts, target shooting, field sports, and more.

"Camp Jordan is a place where anything can happen. It's a place where you meet people that you can never forget.

This was my third year at Camp Jordan and every day I am at camp, I feel like I am on top of the world. Camp Jordan is where dreams are made."

-Alec, Camper

WEEKEND ADVENTURES

We have found that children who spend two or more weeks at camp take away much more from their experience than in just one week. Bonds between campers and staff are further solidified over time. The feeling of belonging and connectedness to this community is heightened. Campers try an even greater variety of new activities, and have time to truly excel in the areas they prefer.

· ADDITIONAL FEES

Weekend Stayover Fee which includes programming and  laundry service -  $89

DIVERSITY

We employ staff from across the globe to expand our campers’

horizons. International staff bring new ideas and traditions, and not only teach our children about their exciting differences, but exemplify the many things all cultures share surrounding values, humor, and leadership. The Bangor YMCA Wilderness Center at Camp Jordan prides itself on hosting a very diverse camper group as well, with campers from across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia.
