2-Week Residential Sessions

YMCA Camp Frank A. Day, or "CFAD" as many campers and alum call it, is a coed summer overnight camp west of Boston in beautiful East Brookfield, MA. 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.

Parent Feedback from Camp Frank A. Day's 2023 Season:

"CFAD had had a very positive impact on our camper’s social skills and level of independence and confidence. "

"CFAD does an unbelievable job at creating a culture of kindness and acceptance. This is hugely impactful for both of my kids, but especially for my son with autism who has struggled with some social difficulties at school. Camp is his happy place. I cry whenever I pick him up and see the friendships and love he has there. He says that camp brings out the best in everyone and that everyone is nice at camp. He feels accepted there for being his true self "

"My camper can’t wait to return next summer, and for longer! He loved camp and this was a wonderful experience that really helped him grow and mature. He said he’s never had such a fun summer experience and was really sad for it to end. We were very impressed with the professionalism of the counselors, the friendly communication from all staff and the way all children seemed genuinely happy in photos and when we were on camp grounds. We look forward to 2024!"
