At YMCA Cedar Ridge Day Camp, your child will have a summer to remember outdoors. Campers are placed into groups to connect and create long-lasting friendships. Weekly outdoor adventures encourage campers to set goals, challenge themselves, overcome obstacles, achieve more and have fun. Cedar Ridge offers hiking, exploring, arts and crafts, canoeing, and, of course, camp songs! Your camper will leave as a part of our Cedar Ridge family forever!

This summer at Cedar Ridge, send your camper to stay overnight with us at Cedar Ridge to get a taste of what it’s like at a residential camp by staying in a cabin. Campers will stay behind on Thursday evening after day camp is over and will get to experience Cedar Ridge at night. We’ll have dinner over a bonfire, do a night hike, and end with some silly camp songs and ghost stories before bed. Campers will sleep in a 20-person lodge with bathroom inside. Wake up the next morning is a full day of camp on Friday with return to Northeast YMCA Friday afternoon with the rest of the group. Space is very limited, so come join us for a night under the stars!
