Camp Frank A. Day | West Suburban YMCA

Overnight Camp in East Brookfield, MA

Camp Frank A. Day

Ages 7-16

Summer after summer, Camp Frank A. Day campers bond as a community as they learn how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group. Through physical, social and educational activities, our campers gain 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.

LITs

Our Leader-in-Training program provides our oldest campers (age 16) a way to transition from camper to counselor. LITs assist counselors in daily operations and camper supervision. LIT sessions follow the same schedule as regular camper sessions.

Mini Camp

Mini Camp is designed for campers who would like to sample the world of overnight camp before making an extended commitment. Over three days and two nights our attentive CFAD counselors will gently guide our youngest campers through all of the ins and outs of the overnight camp experience.

Stephan joined the team here at the West Suburban YMCA in December 2017 after 23 years working for the YMCA of Central Massachusetts.  As a career YMCA camping professional, Stephan believes that summer camp offers a unique chance for children to build social and emotional skills that help them mature into thriving young adults. He has a passion for training peers in the industry in staff training, recruitment, retention, motivation along with child development and child protection.  His past work in Central Massachusetts at a camp serving the special needs populations was recognized by the State of Massachuetts as a Distinguished Program and he hopes to continue that inclusive-based work with the West Suburban YMCA and Camp Frank A Day.  Stephan is returning to his residential camp roots and he is exited to learn all the Camp Frank A. Day traditions along with starting some new traditions and programs for campers to enjoy for years to come.
