Camp Frank A. Day | West Suburban YMCA

Overnight Camp in East Brookfield, MA

Camp Frank A. Day

Ages 7-16

For over 100 years, Frank A. Day campers become part of a community as they learn how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group.  Through physical, social and educational activities, camping also teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all amidst the fun of camp fires, bugle calls, canoeing, soccer matches, archery and talent shows. As a Y camp, our staff are certified in CPR and First Aid and embrace the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. 

Camp Frank A. Day offers traditional camper sessions, a Leader-in-Training Program for our oldest campers and a Mini Camp designed for campers who would like to sample the world of overnight camping before making an extended commitment. Our campus is divided into three units:

Freshman Unit / Ages 7-10 - For many Camp Frank A. Day campers the journey starts in the Freshman Unit. The Freshman Unit consists of 6 cabins, a basketball court, 2 tetherball courts, four square, picnic tables, a shared bath house with the Junior Unit, and it’s own council ring and fire circle. Each cabin has 2 counselors and between 6-8 campers.

Junior Unit / Ages 10-13 - The Junior Unit is the largest unit at Camp Frank A. Day. It consists of 10 Cabins, a basketball court, 2 tetherball courts, four square, a gaga ball pit, a bocce pit, picnic tables, adirondack chairs, a shared bath house with the Freshman Unit, and it’s own council ring and fire circle. Each cabin has 2 counselors and between 6-9 campers.

Senior Unit / Ages 14-15 - The oldest campers at Camp Frank A. Day reside in the Senior Unit. The males in the Senior Unit reside in platform canvas tents (a tradition going back to 1916!) and the females reside in cabins. Our Leaders-In-Training campers also reside in the Senior Unit. The Senior Unit consists of 4 cabins, 5 tents, a basketball court (home of the knockout competition during Color War!), a carpetball table, a gaga ball pit, a bocce pit, picnic tables, hammocks, Adirondack chairs, a bath house, and it’s own council ring and fire circle. Each cabin or tent has 2 counselors and between 6-8 campers.
