This beautifully landscaped 20-acre property including a pool is the setting for both instructional and recreational swimming. The spacious pavilion provides campers with a cool, shady spot for lunch. Our Amish barn is home to many games and activities, and the smaller barn is designed for arts & crafts. The grassy fields give participants ample space for sports, nature, archery and more. Your child will gain an appreciation for the outdoors at Stony Brook Acres.

HERE FOR OUR COMMUNITY
During these challenging times we have developed a program to serve:
The YMCA of Greater Springfield is working to ensure you have access to the programs you need. our programs are and have always been designed with the health and safety of everyone in mind. In fact, “safety” is our rule number one. all camp staff are CPR and First Aid certified and each program has a trained full-time health administrator on duty all day. our “on call” Pediatric Doctor is available ensure that our medical services are complete and wrap around. our camps must and do comply with regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public health and be licensed by the local board of health.

HEALTH & SAFETY
New health and safety policies have been added to our existing policies to improve our program environment. these include: new 1 to 6 group sizes (buses 1 child to a seat), additional bathrooms and hand-wash stations, staff face masks, temperature checks, hand sanitizing stations, increased hand-washing routines, curbside pickup and drop off only and social distancing rules for all. Weekly professional cleanings (all locations) and staff and campers will only be allowed into programs.

WELL-BEING
Our goal this summer is to provide a safe, healthy space where children are free to let their imaginations run wild. children’s social and emotional well-being can be compromised with closed schools, social isolation, food scarcity, anxiety, uncertainty and parental unemployment, the global pandemic has also destabilized kids’ support system. We are taking steps to build in social and emotional support from qualified healthcare professionals to help deal with some of uncertainty and provide children with an environment your child can trust.

ENGAGEMENT (FUN)
Fun and Play are how kids learn and camp would not be camp without it! being creative is the key here; We’ve packed all the large group fun into small groups which means campers have a more personalized experience with their friends and counselors. Smaller groups in the pool and more swim time! Your child will benefit from highly trained individual counselors that will make each and every activity at camp a unique and fun experience like never before!


*Current & Updated Physical and Immunization Forms are due at the time of Registration
A one-time Facility Maintenance Fee of $10.00 will be charged to each camper upon their initial registration. The fee will go the general up keep of the camp property, which in turns helps to keep program fees down.
