School age camp gives campers a traditional camp experience and introduction to a wide variety of activities.  Campers are grouped by grade level and have daily activities tailored for each age group.

Each day, campers participate in small and large group activities, swim, and specialty time. Fridays include a closing celebration featuring theme-based programming. Camp Westside meets and exceeds all camper-to-counselor ratios as designated by the New York State Department of Health. Low camper-to-counselor ratios ensure a personalized and impactful experience for every child we serve.

LIT: The Leaders-in-Training program will give teens the values of teamwork while enjoying several team building activities. Campers will be given opportunities to participate in service projects that leave a lasting impact on their camp and the local community the Y serves. Additionally, they will be working closely with camp leadership staff to deliver programming to younger campers. This is a great transitional program for teens that still provides them with the ability to participate in several traditional camp activities, including swimming.

CIT: This hands-on Counselor-in-Training program is intended to provide teens with the opportunity to learn the basic responsibilities of being a camp counselor in a supportive environment. This four-week program provides the perfect mix of experiential learning, leadership, and fun for a memorable summer. Specialty workshops and team building exercises help build skills such as: collaboration, effective teamwork, public speaking, CPR and First Aid, and understanding stages of youth development. Each CIT will be provided the chance to put their newly learned skills into action assisting with both camper groups and instructional areas.
