Welcome to YMCA Camp Mason

There’s a feeling you get when you visit our camp. You realize you’ve entered a very special place. A place where children can enjoy being active and pursue their own interests in an outdoor paradise. Our 460-acre site offers incredible opportunities for outdoor activities. A place where kids can be kids!

We are a community that values friendship and encourages each member to do their best. A camp that’s big enough to offer a wide range of programs, yet small enough to ensure that every camper receives individual attention and is valued as a person. 

And the experience! Paddling down the Delaware River… seeing the stars glimmering in the night sky… hiking on the Appalachian Trail… sitting with good friends around a campfire... our alumni tell us that these are some of their most treasured memories.

Camp Mason offers a wide range of programs throughout the year. Our property is adjacent to the 70,000-acre Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, one of the last true wilderness areas in the northeastern United States. This proximity affords us almost limitless opportunities for outdoor adventure. We’re near enough (an easy drive from New York City and Philadelphia) and far enough – nestled in the hills of northwestern New Jersey.

Thanks for visiting our website.  We hope you enjoy learning more about our camp, our programs and our traditions.

Our Mission:
Through the transforming experience of outdoor camping – rich in bonding friendships, physical activity, and fun – YMCA Camp Mason will lead youth, families, and community to an awareness of our core traditions of environmental stewardship, spirituality, and respect for our fellow man.
