Camp Watchaug

YMCA Camp Watchaug is a 30 acre premier camp on Watchaug Pond that has grown over the years from just 40 campers a day to serving over 250 per day. Since its inception, Camp Watchaug has served thousands of children and families in the surrounding community. We look forward to offering this valuable outdoor experience to the next generation of campers this summer. Join us and make summer memories for a lifetime.

By providing innovative and stimulating experiences, we allow our campers to strengthen their confidence, grow lasting memories and further their growth as a child or young adult. Our age-appropriate programming focuses on learning and developing new and exciting skills that remain at the forefront of current trends while still holding true to our cherished YMCA values and Watchaug traditions.  Allow your camper to experience camp themselves in one of our great programs. 

Toni’s Kids

Be one of Toni’s Kids at Camp Watchaug!  Toni’s Kids is an integration initiative designed to provide support for children with emotional and developmental challenges so that they can participate with typically developing peers in Y programs and activities.  Toni’s Kids receive the benefit of modifications to camp activities, greater support by trained counselors and a smaller ratio of campers to staff members.  Toni’s Kids participate in all regular activities and learn the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility with fellow campers.  The Toni’s Kids Initiative enhances mutual respect among individuals of all abilities and helps every camper establish positive relationships and build lifelong social skills.  Contact Danita Ballantyne, Camp Director, to coordinate specific services to fully support your child’s camp experience at 401-3647-6535 or dballantyne@oceancommunityymca.org.
