Since 1914, Camp Fitch has been helping children to grow in spirit, mind and body. Located on the shores of Lake Erie in northwest Pennsylvania, campers have the opportunity to choose from over 40 program areas. Water activities in Lake Erie, our four acre inland pond and 25 meter pool provide a wide variety of opportunities. Equestrian, shooting sports, field sports,arts and crafts are all very popular. Through outstanding leadership, we help children develop into well balanced, confident individuals. Camp Fitch YMCA has been successfully serving youth and families since 1914. Our history and tradition and thousands of satisfied families speaks for itself. Parents tell us that they send their children to Camp Fitch because it is a safe place for them to learn new things about themselves, grow in independence and self confidence and gain critical life skills. Our staff include individuals from all over the region and world. We serve children from 24 states and at least 4 different nations including, Spain, South Korea, Mexico,France and England. Our professional staff of 10 camp directors have a combined experience of over 200 years in YMCA camping ministry. Many of our summer staff are school teachers in the off season and our counseling staff are home grown through our own leadership development programs. In addition to a great staff team, our setting on Lake Erie is like other. Our program opportunities are vast and provide over 40 specialty choices. Children have opportunities to focus on a couple of specialty areas and many opportunities to sample other programs as well. Last summer 99.5% of parents surveyed said that they would recommend Camp Fitch to a friend and 88% said they plan to return.
