A series of open houses and job fairs will take place starting this January for The Community YMCA’s 2013 outdoor summer camp programs. The summer camp season runs from June 24 through August 23 at Camp Zehnder in Wall Township. Teens 16 and older who are interested in working at either camp are invited to take a tour and complete a job application.
The Y’s outdoor summer day camps offer children ages 3-15 opportunities to explore the outdoors and participate in a wide variety of programs that help build self-esteem, develop social and interpersonal skills, and keep them active and healthy.
All Y camps are based on the Y's core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. Full-day, half-day and half-week camp options are available for families, and financial assistance is available on a needs-based sliding scale.
Camp Zehnder - Located at 3911 Herbertsville Road in Wall Township, Camp Zehnder lies on 140 beautiful acres with a beach-front lake, two outdoor pools, nature center, climbing wall, biking trails, and shady pavilions.
