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 premier summer camp programs and year-round programs for schools and groups.
Parents, group leaders and educators tell us that the YMCA Camp Mason camp experience has positively impacted their children/students. For the thousands of children who attend camp every year, they will build independence and make new friends from around the globe. They will experience diversity and try new challenges. They will build new skills and feel great about themselves.
Our dining hall serves hearty “family-style” meals so all our summer camp kids will be well-fed and ready for their next camp adventure!
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. Our small size enables us to give your child the individual attention. Everyone is sure to feel at home!
