YMCA of the Pines - Camps Ockanickon, Matollionquay & Lake Stockwell
Learn to swim, catch a frog, ride a zipline, paddle a canoe, build a campfire, make a friend…and that’s just the first day! A day in the life of a camper at YMCA Overnight Camps for Boys & Matollionquay for Girls and Lake Stockwell Co-ed Day Camp are filled with excitement, interaction with friends, and challenging activities. These camps provide a safe place for campers to spend their summers and, in the process, strengthen their characters. As a YMCA, we include the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in every aspect of our programming. Our experienced counselors and programming promote friendships, positive self-esteem, and healthy development and encourage individuality and independence. Our variety of positive camp experiences will impact your child for a lifetime.
Our 800-acre facility located in the Pine Barrens of Medford, NJ is the ideal location for our 3 camps, Ockanickon for boys, Matollionequay for girls, and Stockwell Day Camp (co-ed). Pristine lakes provide the perfect venue for swimming, canoeing, and kayaking. Acres of beautiful pine forest offer the picture-perfect setting for outdoor living skills and earth education. Our state-of-the art ropes course is ideal for team building and confidence boosting. Archery, land sports, and creative arts round out the list of dynamic activities you child can experience throughout the summer. Our programs include single-gender and co-ed experiences, overnight and day camps, off-premise travel adventures, and leadership development—something for everyone! Our flexible schedule and affordable programs accommodate the needs of all of our camp families.
