YMCA Camp Mason is located in the town of Hardwick, NJ, on 460 wooded acres in Northwestern New Jersey. Only 1.5 hours from New York City and 2 hours from Philadelphia, our property borders the 70,000-acre Delaware Water Gap, a pristine national recreation area that provides the perfect backdrop for our summer and year-round programs.
The camp is a fully winterized facility, consisting of comfortable cabins and lodges accommodating up to 400. For 10 weeks of the year we’re a co-ed residential summer camp and day camp, providing an exciting camp experience for children ages 5-16. We’re open the rest of the year for organizations seeking outdoor education, conferences, family activities or group-building opportunities. All our lodging facilities have full bathrooms, electricity and group gathering areas.
Our dining hall serves wonderful “family-style” meals… many guests tell us that the food is one of the main reasons that they return year after year!
Forests, trails, lakes, professionally built challenge courses, a nature center, sport courts, craft centers and dedicated program areas enable us to provide safe and age-appropriate activities that aim to foster new relationships, build self-confidence and teach new skills. Whether you come to camp for a summer stay, a weekend retreat, an outdoor education experience or one of our many other programs, you are sure to feel at home!
