YMCA Camp Burgess for Boys

Sandwich, MA


Camp Burgess is an overnight camp that offers one and two-week sessions for boys ages 7 to 16.  Founded in 1928, Burgess is located on beautiful Spectacle Pond, Cape Cod, across from our sister Camp Hayward, which started in 1961.  

Our brother-sister structure allows Burgess campers to benefit from an all-boy environment while also experiencing safe and positive opportunities for co-ed social interaction. 

Camp Burgess is a place for boys to have an amazing summer experience.  Campers will gain independence, build community and foster strong friendships with kids from across the country and beyond.There is so much to do at Burgess.  With their fellow cabin mates, campers will explore our massive property, go on great adventures, challenge themselves on ropes courses and climbing towers, learn outdoor living skills, build things with their hands and play an endless array of games on our courts and fields and fresh water ponds.  There is something for everyone at Burgess.  Come feel the spirit and positive energy that makes Burgess a one of a kind overnight camp.
