Young Explorers Summer Programming

A Summer of Adventure!

Summer Programming for ages 4-5 | Saugus Family YMCA

A transitional program for our youngest campers to gain all the benefits that Camp Sachem has to offer without the overwhelming nature of being outside 100% of the time. Campers will arrive indoors in a more relaxed environment away from the rest of the camp where they will have a morning meeting with their group to prepare for the day. Campers will participate in all the events and activities that make Camp Sachem special such as ropes courses, nature hikes, team-building activities, and weekly special events but in an age-appropriate environment.
