Teen & Leadership Camps

Kids in Life Vest Having Fun in Water


Please note that program information on this site will be changing over the next few weeks as we get the site up-to-date with all the fun camp descriptions, new and updated programs, availability and pricing. 

YMCA Camp Kern prides itself on programming which helps develop our teens and campers into the future leaders of tomorrow. These programs focus on character building, leadership development, teamwork, and challenging oneself physically, mentally and emotionally. Whether your camper is looking to grow into one of the future leaders of Camp Kern or become a leader in the community, YMCA Camp Kern's leadership camps has a program for them. Each of the programs listed below offers something a little above and beyond a traditional week at camp, but they all share a focus on giving experiences and memories that will help teens and campers succeed in the future.
