    Amid New York’s Catskill Mountains, our camps instill our timeless traditions (singing hoopla, USB, the hula hop) and our 8 core values (caring, community, diversity, honesty, inclusiveness, respect, responsibility, stewardship). Depending on the age of your camper, we have a variety of easy to challenging camps for all ages and experience levels along with a great selection of places to see and things to do that will allow each camper to learn skills for the future

    Your tech-loving teen will come to Frost valley and unplug, take healthy risks, and make lifelong friends. You'll hardly recognize them when they come home! Teens tranform into confident young adults here in this 5,500-acre Catskill mountain camp.

    Give your teen the summer of a lifetime on an Adventure Trip, where options include backpacking, kayaking, mountain biking, rock climbing, or volunteering with organizations like Habit for Humanity. Visit places like Main, Vermont, West Virginia, the Adirondacks, and the White Mountains of New Hampshire!

    Teens love traditional sleep-away camp, where events include our very own "Hirdstock" a vibrant, open-air talent show; "Olympix," a camp-wide teambuidling sporting event; and Fireworks over Lake Cole for Fourth of July. Campers enjoy activities like boating/canoeing, climbing, hiking, sports, arts and crafts, ziplining, high and low ropes courses, swimming, archery, and more!

    Our all-girls horse camp is world renowned for taking both novice and experienced equestrians to the next level. Girls become leaders and strangers, lifelong friends.

    NEW THIS YEAR! The suvival expert who brought you the TV show "Man v.s Wild" now brings you: Bear Grylls Survival Academy summer camp, which debuts at Frost Valley YMCA summer 2015.
