About Camp Eastman

WELCOME TO CAMP!

Camp Eastman at the Torigian Family YMCA is an American Camp Association® (ACA) accredited day camp program for girls and boys ages four to fifteen. At Camp Eastman, children will make new friends, discover new passions, explore creativity and develop skills through a wide range of fun activities in the great outdoors.

Camp Eastman is so much more than a typical day camp. It is a place for values, learning, skill building, self-confidence and fulfilling dreams. Our program encourages independence and teamwork leading to happy, healthy, confident kids. Join us, adventure awaits!

A Typical Day… Each day, the camp begins with a morning assembly- a spirited meeting to get campers excited for the day!  Here we sing songs and make special announcements. Campers move on to many activities, both indoor and outdoor; from swimming, gym games, arts & crafts, nature & adventure and more. Campers will have the option to attend regular Adventure Days, an exciting day trip away from camp. Each week also has a service learning theme where campers will explore different social responsibility activities.

*Detailed Adventure Day destinations, theme weeks and social responsibility activity information are posted prior to the summer session.
