Young People’s Camp: Ages 8-13

Young People’s Camp (YPC) is all about fun! Every day offers a variety of choices ranging from quiet games of checkers to rowdy games of ultimate Frisbee; singing groups to junk band sessions; bracelet-making playshops to theater games; mural painting to body painting; blowing bubbles to making up super-heroes (a YPC favorite!) One day we may dress up as pirates; another day we do everything backwards. At lunchtime, we bang on the tables and make lots of noise. Later, by the bonfire, we have quieter times, telling stories and singing songs. For many, this is their first time away from home, an experience that can be both scary and exciting. 

YPC is a place where campers grow, have fun, connect with others, and feel accepted and valued. We make a space where young people can be all of themselves: the part that wants to play and the part that wants to think seriously about the world. Our aim is to give campers a chance to start the lifelong exploration of discovering who they are as individuals: identifying the values they find important, figuring out what they love about themselves, and finding their strength. We also work to build a community that reflects a just world where people of all identities are valued and where all people feel supported for who they are.

“My son has been to YPC for the last two years and he has found the experience immensely rewarding and enriching. He has found kids who share his values and outlooks and he has had a great deal of FUN! These last few school years have been difficult for him, with some bullying, and the more we expose him to like-minded folks the better. We want to continue the experience for him and make Rowe an important part of his life.” — A parent of a YPC camper
